That is exactly the way to do it. I am trying that on several of my cars. The guy who did this to his TC3 is an experienced racer and wouldn't have done this if it was a bad mod, so I have faith.

Yes, but I believe Bud's Racing Products offered a couple of stiffer ones.

Jack Smash,

Do you know if that company has a website? Or is it BRP racing products?

To shorten the rear the spacers must be on the rear side of the hub carrier.

To shorten the front, the spacers must be on the front side of the castor block.

Hope this helps.

fromm the book
Quote:
moving the spacers to the front of the hub carriers will lenghten the wheenbase and decrease rear traction ans moving the spacers to the rear of the hub carriers will shorten the wheelbase and increase rear traction
ive never heard of bump steer
