Hi, we are participating in a student formula event, and we are currently designing the frame. I am the responsible for the steering and while deciding the place for mounting it (keeping in mind the pedals, feet of the driver and a arms), I realized I don't know enough about it. And so, here I am, writing this question, hoping to know more about the engineering behind -
1. How to decide where to mount the rack if what we need is to minimize toe during jounce and rebounds and bump steer.
2. How does the tie rods (its length, its inclination w.r.t rack) effect the steering as a whole.
