i notice i am the only one that stated wheelbase, is it my understanding or does wheelbase/rear% effect each other? IE, short wheelbase car 108" needs more lead to get rear% up to 58 and large wheelbase 112" need less lead? larger wheelbase allows engine to be set farther back resulting in increased rear%?
