Ugh, it’s hot, 97 deg in the garage. The steering was checked and there was some bump-steer, which was corrected by spacing the rack up a bit. During design I must have lost sight of “the forest for the trees” at some point and moved the lower front suspension points inward to improve roll-center behavior, forgetting that those points had already been set so the stock rack could be used in line with the lower A-arms. Such is design – and compromise. Oh well, fortunately it’s just embarrassing rather than anything serious. Tomorrow’s supposed to be “cooler”, down into the high 80s.
