Default Caster question

I installed the Cralwers Central links as soon as I got my Venture. Would adjusting the length of the lower links via unscrewing the rod end add caster to the front? In my head it makes sense but I may be way off and am reaching out to the crawler community for advice. Thanks!

I see those links are solid stainless steel. If you want to increase the length it would be best to get longer rod ends. I got more caster on my SBK by shortening the upper link by 4mm. I used Vaterra Ascender links with spacer to do this.

The Ascender parts.



Resulting camber.

Do you happen to have the eye to eye length of that upper link you made?

I'm not sure but I used the stock Venture ends and the link is 100mm. Can't measure it as not at home until later. It's 4mm shorter than stock is all I remember.
