Width of the front and rear
OEM spec is 10mm dif 252 262.

would you recomend to go lower than 7mm or higher than 13mm.

What do you think of the WOS setup 256 266?
Thanks for your help

HAVE FUN

Whats up Steve!

As far as setup goes, Walter and I usually run the car fairly wide, but not too wide. Just as what we used at Revelation! 252/265! I have been using the WOS steering blocks lately at Crystal Park, and i love them! but im still running the car at 252 in the front, it seems pretty balanced still, less responsive but more steering on throttle.

What up mayn! I wasn't lying man! Haha the WOS isnt a must, but i really really like them on the car. As far as lightening axles, its a must on any car! haha, but the car is fine without doing so. Just get them as you go. Enjoy!
