its simpel a wider car will be more stabel and easyer to drive than a narrow car. like taking a penny and standing it on its side compared to a bottel of beer lol the bottel will stand up easyer.

nw15x,don't think the wide or narrow track matters that much on stability but the wheel base length does .A shorter wheel base is harder to drive for a driver without much experance & the longer one is more forgiven.On the track width a narrower one will transfer weight to the right better going in & through the corner than the wider one & if you race on dirt this is what you want for side bite . For exp. if i had a choice of a 68 " track width or a 78" i would take the 68" anytime. cd2
