do you line up your right side tires with each other or your left side? I'm still learning all the set ups and i was pretty sure that it is the left side, but i saw a guy talking on the speed channel about set ups on dirt mods and he said to line up the right side tires.

I line up the right side as a STARTING point. Then adjust accordingly.

That tv show you saw was Two Guys Garage..

The guy that set the car up must be an Asphalt guy.

I normally try to get the left sides close and then the right front out about an inch from the rr. Remember to set your rearend from side to side before you start lining up tires

seems like people are split on this. here is my personal way. left side in line. then right rear 1-3 inches inside of rf. depends on car.

Extreme, your right it was two guys garage, and the guy said he was talking about dirt set up. He also talked about rear percent and adding weight that is opposite from what everyone else says and does also.

Zero, the way you describe is what i have in mind for a start.

It doesn't matter what the heck u do. Put some wheels on it and go race it. Then start tuning on wheel offsets and moving the axle left to right.

line up your left sides with the same wheel offsets after squaring and centering the rearend in the frame with the car at ride heights and race ready
