You can build the most awesome thing in the world but at some point, an 80yr old man in a crx is probably going kick your butt on the track... don't ask me how I know.

I tried to play with those numbers and it doesn't seem to match what you have. I'm getting a RC height of -1" and parallel arms.

Is +X forward, +Y up, and +Z left?

That's the way I read it. Which means the roll center is underground, the caster is negative, the trail is negative, the KPI is large, and ackerman is largely negative...And that's not even beginning to look at the dynamic situations. No offense Mo, but those numbers seem to be rather arbitrarily chosen.

Here is the sketch. I need to re look at the wishbone post to get my coordinates correct.
