Default Mushroom orientation

Hi Could anyone advise in which direction the offset on the mushroom inserts is meant to point ? it appears to point towards the back of the upright or into the centre of the chassis from the picture on page 73

Regards

Rob

On that page (#73) it states in the text of paragraph 3, "The hole must be tight in the suspension upright with the hole at the front."

It gives a good amount of self center at the front and after IVA move them to 11 o'clock on the left one and 2 o'clock on the right to give better feel to steering and better handling.

Dont forget to provide some locking device for IVA.

Is the locking (which I assume is - drill through the upright into the mushroom, tap and secure with a bolt) considered superfluous?

I am struggling to imagine how you'd secure it, then turn it and resecure it...

sorry to jump in but I'm at the same stage. I know the mushrooms are meant to be tight but i can barely fit mine in at all which would be fine if i can get them spot on but i'll never be able to move the orientation of the hole as you suggest. How are yours for going in?
