Sorry I didn't see your email earlier. You can email me at kartbuilding

Regarding your query, as far as I'm aware, racing ride on mowers have a
castor and camber angle.
Your best bet would be to look up on ride-on mowers. I took a quick
search and found manuals on the following website:
I found this manual:
http://www.hondapowerequipment.com/pdf/manuals/31772630.pdf  but it
didn't have much on the steering details.

You can also try looking at ride-on mowers and other racing ride-on
mowers people have modified to see what they done. You can easily see
what angles they use from the steering pivot (king pin).

Also I wouldn't be too worried about getting the correct angles first
time. You can experiment and adjust the castor and camber angles
afterwards. See:

Best of luck,
