Hi Stefan, "smoother initial turn in then more mid corner steering" is what I mean by my car is handling more consistently.
Before I changed to the 6 degree caster I have a little too much initial and lack of mid corner steering.

I think I will stick to the 6 degree caster for now.

Sorry, one more question.
Does increasing the from arm sweep, eg. from FF: 1.5 / FR: 1.0 to FF: 2.5 / FR: 1.0, increases the initial and mid corner steering or mid and exit or just mid?

Many thanks!
