Default Adjustments

Looking at the car...I can bring the rear arms forward with the spacers,I can bring the rear upright/hub carrier forward with the spacers.Can anyone give info on the differences between the two?Both will shorten the wheelbase,it seems,but what would the,if any,differences be?Thanks,Mario.

Both should have the same effect. The hub and arm are carried over from the Pro 4, which was only adjustable at the hub. You can go crazy and change both if you want a huge change.

If you run anti/pro squat, etc, you can run into problems with the arms moving higher and lower in relation with the chassis, but you would have to be making a really big adjustment.

The only thing I'm thinking is.....If you move the arms forward,it will have a greater effect on weight transfer(and?) because you are physically moving more of the car behind the arms,so to speak.With the hub carriers,the "rear overhang" is the same,so maybe a different effect on handling?Not sure if I explained that right or if even my thinking is right.lol.Going to try this on friday if I can.Just wanted some input to think about before I go practice.Thanks,Mario.

Shorter wheelbase = more grip! give you less steering tho!

Now that you have some opinions on what it might possibly do to the cars handling, you should give it a try and then post your findings on here. Just curious.

to me..
a short wheelbase is good for small technical tracks.
and longer wheelbase for med-large fast open tracks.

Just think of what the wheel does...with either adjustment, the wheel moves. And that is the only thing that touches the track.

How? I've always found the opposite. When you shorten the wheelbase on a touring car, the car rotates better - which has to mean there's a reduction in traction (at some point), right?
