what do you guys think is the perfect wheelbase? I've heard arguments for 112, and my dad thinks 108 is the way to go. what do you guys think.

also how does this effect car either way. I assume longer means slower, but it also means more engine set back and rear percent. just trying to get and idea of what works best.

It depends alot on the driver and the Track size. When we ran Asphault I liked a 108 on the 1/4 mile tracks as the shoter wheel base turns better. When we ran a USA International Speedway which is 5/8 mile our old 114 inch wheelbase car was alot more stable through the corners.

I mostly run on a semi- banked dirt 3/8ths track.
