The rack-and-pinion steering system is designed to use straight ahead steering arms and produces very little Ackermann effect if both sterring arms are the same length. Since both wheels turn the same amount as the rack moves back and forth, the wheels steer an equal number of degrees. The stock-type spindles with top view angled steering arms were intended to be used on the stock based drag link steering systems. When racers started using the lightweight rack spindles with straight steering arms on the drag link system, it produced a considerable amount of Ackermann effect and caused a considerable gain in toe when the steering wheel was turned.
