Pretty cool.

Yes, I have posted my trail steer car several times.

It would work just fine with one axle or ten, and, all wheels would just naturally follow their correct path, and, no need to connect it to the guide (kind of counter productive to have trail steer connected to the guide)

At least one wheel of each axle must be on the ground, and, it can be Ackerman or non Ackerman. Apparently Lotus did not use Ackerman steering in their F1 cars.

Will post pics again later.

4 jaw if I want real accuracy. But, I do true up my 3 jaws from time to time, so, they are usually pretty close.

Also, the 3 jaw chuck on my Myford is adjustable for radial runnout. It has 3 cam adjusters that move the body around on the backplate to true it up.

4 jaw chuck not collet. Most people find using 4 jaw chucks quite cumbersome, but, if you use them all the time, you can get quite fast at setting work to run dead true in them.
