The focus of this paper would be on the design of steering system for a small formula race type vehicle. The design would consist of determining steering geometry with the use of tire models and optimizing the deign to have the best possible design. Ackermann Geometry, Anti Ackermann, parallel steer will be discussed and the ways to obtain the desired geometries will also be focussed on. The effect of steering on other parameters like roll centre will also be discussed. The importance of reducing bump steer and the methods of doing it will also be discussed.
