I would like to here why people leed the rearend and when you say leed the rr would that make it longer than the lr (leeding the tire back) or leeding the rr make it shorter than the left (leed it forward) I have just put what the chassis builder says to put in and left it at that. what kind of advantage would you get from longer right side or longer left side? Thanks guys!

By leading the rr you will make the car tighter and leading lr makes the car looser.But don't get carried away here i would'nt adjust this no more than an 1/8 of an inch or so at a time.Just my thought.

To keep it straight in your mind, think of it this way... to lead is to be ahead so to lead the LR would be moving the LR AHEAD of the RR thereby shortening the left side.

By leading the right rear, that means moving the right rear wheel in front of the left rear wheel. This will tighten the car up getting in the turns. What this does is, when the car rolls over getting into the turn, it makes the distance between the left front and right rear closer and the distance between the right front and left rear longer. So the right rear will get more traction getting in the turn, this will tighten the car up. This works real well on dry slick tracks.
