Hi Dave,

In order to find the ackerman angle, there is a rule of thumb -> using a
straight line (or straight length of wood etc) and go from the center of
the rear axle to the Pivot (KingPin) of the left and the right front
It is done here on my website:

I hope this works ok for you.
Best of Luck,

> Hey, I just found your kart plans on the internet.  Very nice of you to go through all the work of providing plans.   Question on the Ackerman angle.   How do I figure this out myself.  I think I'm going to have to do something if I change the axle width.   I've done a little searching, but I havn't found any formulas yet.   It would be real cool if someone just had a spread sheet already setup.
