What effects should we expect going from 3" offsets to 2" offsets on the left side of the car? We will rescale and keep the weight the same.

Help!!!!!

We run 3"offsets on all corners except LR you want to keep the wheels up under the car so we run 2" offsets there.I was told if the track goes to dry slick to switch the two rears putting the 2"offset on the RR in the 3" on the LR. Havent tryed the switch yet so not sure how well it works.I hear wider is better on the fronts.

sticking the left rear out further (or pulling the right rear in) will tighten the car up when you're in the throttle. It's great on dry slick, but difficult on a wet track. I don't think changing the front will affect much if you make it scale out the same.

Think of it this way the more you get the left side tires under the car the more you will increase your left side weight, same thing has shifting the right side out will do the same, so if you run say 4 on the left and 3 s on the right its kinda like shifting the whole chasis over one inch to the left therefore making the left side weight percentage increase, a well known chasis builder said get the left side whell has close to the chasis as poss. with out scrub so I always use 4 on the left and 3 on the right.
