On hard steering lock do your tyres scrub? eg parking etc. I was told all Elites do this due to the suspension set up.

Why did they not adopt the Ackerman steering? :respect:

In fast corners the difference between ackermann steering and parallel steering is negligible due to how little you turn the wheel. I would assume there is some advantage in having parallel steering, whether it be feel or cornering force. I think karts have parrallel steering.

Non-ackermann steering is only a disadvantage in slow full lock situations.

Keep in mind there are three options, not just Ackerman and non-Ackerman, there's reverse(or anti)-Ackerman. The latter is where the inner wheel turns less than the outer one.

Anti-Ackerman is the one that generally gives the better handling at higher speeds as it has effects on the inclination of the wheels and the grip each then has.
