There is no need to do that on the TC5. The geometry is already correct.

I feel that the car would not work correctly if you did it. I say trust the design team. They know what they are doing.

I don't think it would work. the shocks would set much futher out, the rear tower is much wider than the front. I would not do it. Feel free to try and post results.

how warm is a little warm? you should have some room to gear up(lower final drive). As long as the motor is around 170*f or lower, youll be fine.
