Well jammin, thats a loaded question. But i will give my thoughts........The biggest difference in a WISSOTA LATE MODLE AND A WISSOTA MODIFIED IS THE TIRES........so with a mod you must create more body roll to get enough side bite.........also, a mod must weigh in at 2500 and a late at 2300 so with the heavy car being the mod, and also not having as much motor you must not pinch a mod.............thats any race car though
it becomes more important in a mod though...
carring corner speed and not getting off the gas is more important in a mod......although with a late model if you missed the set up a little you will not win........in a mod the driver becomes more valueable........and can take a 3rd place car and win sometimes.....jeff
