One benefit of a wider front trackwidth is that it can be helpful in reducing traction rolling......I`m running a 200mm trackwidth on the front and there`s no issues with getting the universals to stay in at this trackwidth.

there is only one way i know to get consistently good traction at ec, and that is to run fastlap tyres. they have to be the most awesome tyres to use at ec, no problems at all with the back end sliding out etc, with GRP tyres i could never find a setup that was fast. i really reccomend these tyres!

Yes! Man, there's no more Silverstone track! Now I go to this ghetto offical track in Taipei which is larger compare with silverstone. Yeah softer tyres really help, I am thinking to get some mesurement guage these days.

What's the highest gearing I can get? I'm running 23/56 61/17
I want more TOP speed while maintain good low speed. I run a NSR5 now.

2mm would be more play than in mine......as mentioned in a previous post make sure you have the spacers fitted to the one-way....theyre part #74.
