Radius Rod Bushings Caster Settings +3/4?

Installed my bc coilovers yesterday and was about to install the radius rod bushings but I was not sure what setting to put the caster setting to. I've been searching the forum and see that alot of people recommend +3/4 setting.

Anyone disagree with that setting?

Car is full boltons, and cam. Use car for street/strip digs and rolls.

I just did mine and set them to +3/4. Everyone recommends it because it's a probably the most widely used setting on them. I'd say set it to that and once the alignment is done adjust accordingly. Most the time +3/4 gives us the most room.

When I had VMR VB3 19x8.5 et40 with 245/35/19 on the front, I tried the +1 1/4 setting. That setting was too extreme. The tires rubbed on the front of the wheel wells and had some mid corner understeer. I used the +1/2 setting and it felt much better (never tried the +3/4).

Now with 285s I have to use the stock setting to not rub on the front wheel wells when I turn. I could probably remove the inner fender liner, the washer fluid and the coolant tank but I like the car to be kind of practical.

I'll go ahead and go for the + 3/4 setting and see how it feels.

In most cases +3/4 will enhance turn in..without rubbing. If you rub pin the inner wheel well.
