Default narrowing the rear track-width mrx-4

what would change if you narrow the rear track-width of the car? for example, mrx-3 lower rear arms are maybe a tad over a 1/8 of a inch shorter than mrx-4 arms

This will give you more rear bite but I will probably make the car push.

More forward traction

Less side or lateral traction

More chance of traction rolling

You have to try it first, and feel the difference.

In my case, narrow rear trackwidth (261mm ) make the car less stable. The push is still there, and possible lost of traction in some less grippy corners.
