You'll have to recheck front end settings if you go to a narrower front end. You'll have to check your camber as it might go positive and you'll have to check your toe angles at the wheels as they may toe in on you.

Go figure
Interesting,
I bet it made no mention about front 1-ways or "spools" either.

Those wacky engineers

yup, definitely.
For example, a chassis with a couple of degrees inboard toe and 0 deg toe at the wheel is more agressive than having 0 inboard toe and 0 toe at the wheel.

Hmm, I thought I got all the short springs?....which springs do you need measured? If you ship them up here, I'll measure them and return them to you at the Reedy Race.

You flip a normal 415 or Evo 3 A Block and use 5 mm spacer to raise it. Surikarn did this at the reedyrace of asia. Pics at: http://www.rczone.net/modules.php?na...rder=0&thold=0

used a C block up front.. flipped an A block upside down..and used 5mm worth of spacers..and it worked great. clearance for the belt was good.

swept the arms back and gave me a ton of steering. didnt have enough time to experiment tho. this was on an indoor high bite asphalt track.
