Are you guys using the plastic washers that go on the outside of the wheel hex and between the tire for spacing in the front and rear?

To be honest I never tried it with them in the front. I setup my MI3 kinda like my EC was. If nothing else I have extra steering which is nice. I can always get rid of it easier than I can find it.

Wouldn't a narrower front end give more rear traction and less steering?

Running the front narrow will give you more steering, but it will be less stable. It will make it quicker and more aggressive.

On my setup I was running 1mm spacers on the outside of the rear hex and no spacers on the outside of the front. Even like that the front end was still about 1mm wider overall than the rear.

Spacing out the rear more should have taken away rear traction but made the car more stable and more predictable if it did slide.

Is that more steering on or off power? Or is it just more steering all around?

It should be everywhere. But honestly I hardly ever mess with it. I think the last time I changed my car width was like 8 months ago or something LOL.

This is pretty much what I have done to. Put it on and never really changed it. I would rather have too much steering than not enough. I find it is alot easier to get rid of unwanted steering than to find it all the time.
