Well it should be around the front wheel center line but it currently is not! Usually cars are designed with the coordinate system exactly there but due to legacy reasons MVRC cars have their coordinate system in the center of the front wheel patches. Now the car gets rotated around that point. I will try to fix that.

Ok, but it is a small difference I think (chosing the optimum rake will be an iterative process anyway)
