Dang! That's almost as sexy as Mugen9112's signature pic.
Say 9112, I'm from NoVa (live in Wisconsin now)
Do you know Tod Lewis? if so, does he still race?

Davidka- yea my avatar is sexy! if you want more turn in steering then you should move your upper arms closer to the shock tower. if that isnt the thing then move the tie rods on the ackerman somehwere else.

warpig- NICE CAR!

yea i know todd lewis, not personally but he races at my track every so often. hes real cool, nice guy and always answers your questions. did i mention that he is one hell of a racer aswell.............

Not even close....900 some posts is all and there is valuable information in there that others will miss if you start a new thread.

Some other threads have 15,000-20,000 posts and still going strong.

shorter usually gets you around the corners quick.. it can be twitchy.. depending on your setup.. longer is more stable in bumps.. and jumps better.. but slower getting around the corner.. there's more to it.. but that is a simple answer

Is it the short wheelbase when there is a spacer in both front and rear or both inbehind the upright?

Be careful with wheelbase. It's got more to do with where the weight of the car is then the length of it. A 2wd buggy will usually gain froward bite if you shorten the wheelbase from the rear because the motor is farther behind the hubs. This causes there to be slightly less weight on the front wheels. 4wd's are probably different since all of the weight is in front of the rear axles.
