Tallest tire right front. Next tallest right rear. Next tallest left rear. Smallest left front. All for your local TACKY track. One inch stagger difference is really good, but that depends on the tire you can run at your local track.

For a dry slick, even up the rear stagger and you will be surprised on what the difference can be. The idea is to get more bite on the left rear to even the load on a slick surface, thus giving you more forward traction (bite). Adding a pound of air into the right front will transfer a lot of bite into the left rear!

So it all makes sense, taller right side gives you a natural "turn" into the corners. Of course and as always, much depends on how you set the car up with scaling, wheel off-sets, air pressure, ect. Much can be gained by playing with air pressures, wheel off-set and stagger. Which CAN be the easiest adjustments that a guy or girl can do at the track to get their car to go FASTER and more PREDICTABLE. Have fun!

Race on.

if it ain't fun, then don't run
