[IMPROVEMENT] Caster in advanced setup

Recommended Posts

I would like caster adjustment in the advanced setup menu, to adjust the feeling of countersteer.

The what option wasn't entirely serious, but just in case, since it's been chosen:

Basically, caster is the vertical angle of the steering axis. Positive caster means the top of the steering axis is behind the bottom; if the car is moving forward, the wheels will want to point forward since there's some leverage due to the difference between the contact patch and the bottom of the axis. If the car is moving sideways, the wheels will want to move with the direction of the car for the same reason. Pretty much every car will have some amount of positive caster, and changing the amount can have a profound effect on every stage of cornering.



In reality, it would be much easier to change this on some cars than others of course, so ideally there would be a per-car adjustable range.
