Default Tricycle gear question.

1. On a tricycle gear set up should the nose wheel strut be raked forward, raked back or vertical?

2. When at rest on the ground should the airplane be nose down, nose up or level?

Before I ripped the firewall off with inadvertant high speed contact with the earth, the wheel was raked forward and seemed to want to always find its own wandering track.

About finished with a new firewall and want it right this time.

Gravity sucks, but seems to suck a lot harder when I am flying.

Thanks for the advice.
