What is the effect of caster angle in automobiles and what will happen if we use neutral caster?
We study that positive caster makes vehicle more stable at high speeds. It increases lean while cornering that's why it requires power steering. It has return ability or self aligning torque.
For negative caster, minimal steering input effort is required. It gives no feedback to the driver and it will unstable and increase under braking conditions. Best examples include office chairs, shopping carts etc.
