In my Super Street rules it says I can run a wide five, but it is a 75# penalty. What is a wide five? Anyone.

if you run wide fives on the front with hubs,spindles,tube a-arms,etc, you can expect bout a75# weight savings. so, you gain nothing in terms of overall weight savings with ( 75# penalty ) but, gain alot in unsprung weight and rear percentage. hope this helps. neil
