With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

He mentions that if the caster is to high, you will have "bump steer". This is not correct. Bumpsteer becomes more evident as the caster angle is diminished. The higher the caster, the LESS likely you will have "Bump steer".

Does that mean that the higher angle makes you "wander" a bit? Because I seem to experience that just a little...

Couple of questions:
1. Will caster being that high give me problems or is it just annoying?
2. ToKu mentions he set his at 2.4 for his driving taste. However, he has a 6" lift. You think I could safely go with 2.4 with 3"? Or how do I know what my "taste" is?

Oh, and slightly off topic, but I'm planning on adjusting my lift down next weekend - don't have time this weekend. But how do you know if you have fubar'd your CV joints?

That post was from when Toku had only a 3" lift.
