Hey  everyone,

I’m really struggling from choosing the best adjustment for the steering system for the car pro Ackermann is said to be good and anti Ackermann is also good I know the difference between  each setup and the load transfer , slip angle curves, low speed vs high speed issue but I really searched but couldn’t find a absolute answer or even a likely choice for mini baja vehicles  so please it would be great to know if there is an answer

There is no answer. 
I have seen cars with both the setups do exceptionally well at the manoeuvrability event. 

It really comes down to how you want the characteristics you just mentioned to affect your car handling.
