I recently read somewhere that when making changes at the track, such as changing wheel offsets or stagger sizes, you should reset your ride heights. The article (where ever it was) said you should make the changes in the shop, record what you have to do to get back to the initial ride heights, then do those adjustments at the track. I've never done that and was wondering if anyone really does that? Is it worth the trouble? Actually, it sounds like more of an asphalt deal to me. What do you think?

I agree with you, who the heck has the time? It would take a 15 man crew to do the things these non-race car owner writers dream up in some of these articles. Have a base line and make changes as necesary to get it to turn.

It would be fairly easy if you knew from testing in the shop that if you put a four off on the RR from a two off and decreased the stagger to a quarter inch from an inch that you needed to raise that corner one turn on the jack ***** (I meant bolt. I don't believe that ***** was automatically edited!) I'm just not sure if it would be worth doing.
