Hi, my new car (metric)has extra holes to adjust the upper control arms up or down where it connects to the body. They are in the middle setting now. What are the effects with moving the higher or lower? Thanks! Car is loose off but it is probably my right foot to blame. Race

when the track goes dry slick move the controll arm to the bottom hole it will help with forward bite you will be really suprised.

loose is fast & on the edge of out of control

angle down(forward) in the upper arms will act like a pullbar in a modified. It will try to lift the car on acceleration and provide antisquat. Same with putting up angle in the bottom links.

Ok. Should I do both arms or just one side? Thanks, Race
