    Best diff nose angle?

    We are replacing the atlas axle on our MK1 Escort tarmac rally car.

    It is a 5 link set up.

    What is the optimum angle for the diff nose.

    I have heard that pointing the nose down helps with traction?

    Can anyone offer any advice before we weld the spring saddles?

    Thanks

    Phil
