    Fwiw some of the wisefab kits have negative Ackerman.

    One of many reasons why wisefab is hot garbage.

      See post above. Tire theory actually leads towards negative ackerman for ultimate steady state grip in a corner. The more normal force on the tire, the more slip angle it takes for it to generate peak grip. So you want more angle on the outer tire.


      For drifting I have no idea what's best.

          I have a question. Ive read that a good starting point is to put my control arms parallel to the ground so that I don't mess up the roll center to bad when lowering the car (S14). I ran into an issue since I run z32 wheels and decided I'd try to lower the car to 4mm from the tire (coilover perch to tire with 5mm sandwich spacer). I check the control arms and find that they are about parallel to the ground at about .5" under stock height.

          I can put the TT rears on the front and lower another inch but is that worth it. Might look better.

          Am I overthinking this?

          Any suggestions, other than buy new wheels and tires?
