Wink need some info plz tech guru's

ok guys i need some help regarding setups here

if u look at a pan car or a F1 car the rear tire and the fornt tire's outer width is the same but the rear tire is larger
the outer width is the same cause in the actual width without the tires, the rear arm is SHORTER compared to the front one
this if i m not mistaken gives more rear end bite

now i m asking if i will get better grip at the rear if i use shorter REAR arms ( my car has 3 diff settings long, med and short)

if i use shorter rear arms BUT the outer WIDTH ( whith wheels on)
is the same as front WILL it ALSO gives me better rear end grip ??

PLZ tell me and explain ...
i think i could see some very interesting discussions from everyone here ...

TY

It makes a hell of a difference, wheather you are shortening the arm from the inner pin or from the outer pin.

What car do you have? If you make the rear end's width narrower then the rear will have a smaller contact patch with the ground making it more likley to spin out, spin the rear's during excelleration and harder to drive(But it will run better at high speed(less drag) so if you have a BIG track it might work better). I'm not an expert with this stuff so please coorect me if I have given wrong information.

um ... it has 3 dif settings ... one if at 200mm another 190 and another 180 mm

what i m thinking of is that i shorten the A ARM by using the inner hole but maintain a width of 188 mm like the front ...

this can be done cause with the LONG a arm setting the pin is situated at the outer hole on my hubs and a arm
and theres a inner hole on the hubs and the arms which means effectively it shortens the a arm but maintain a 188 mm of width
i m wondering if by doing that will it increase grip ??
i tested it already but just need to confirm it teorically

ty again .. plz help
