I started off with 2" all the way around and squared up the Left side.We have already wrecked 2 and i am running low.I do have some 3" offset.If i put a 1" spacer with a 3' would it be the same?Or would it act different because of the tire location on the wheel?I am thinking of ding this to both fronts.

with a modified tire it might not make much difference but with our sprint car wheels its huge difference. I can leave the RR spacing the same but change from a 3 off to a 6 off wheel and tighten the car up a bunch. Why? Because with the center of the wheel farther toward the outside it is putting more pressure on the outside of the tire helping sidebite. It works the same for a 8" wheel but you will less likely not be able to notice any difference.
