It depends on tyre width and whether there is suspension on the kart or not.
There is no hard and fast rule. I had to experiment a bit in the karts I
made. Having an incorrect angle caused a huge jacking effect and made
steering difficult. You will know if the angle is incorrect from
driving. If you are unsure, start with a small angle.
Best of luck,
