i was just wondering, do you guys have a prefered angle of the steering wheel? or does it not matter because theres not much you can do to it since the height of the wheel has to be right?

just wondering

I don't have a particular angle -- I just eyeballed it. Maybe 30 degrees -- 35 degrees? Anybody else?

Of the karts I've built -- I've just put it where it felt good, and it worked. So that's just my opinion -- but as far as the physics and what's the limits of the angles -- heck I don't know. But since you're building it -- do what feels comfortable, and then if the angles don't work when you test the steering system -- change it!
