Ok everyone knows Im new to dirt.

I have a plan to make my lead placed in my car very easy to move. I have several options I am considering and I do not know which is the best.

1. I can make it move side to side about shoulder ht.
2. I can mount it to the left rear, and make it move up and down.

Both ways will be on a slider and very easy to move. which would you guys recomend and why??

or am I going to far?

I plan to mount my battery behind the driver shoulder ht, and am planning for it to move from left to right also.

The cars built to use the same wheels all around and bolt on spacers for adjustment.

Any help opinion is appreciated!!!!

I would mount were i could move it left to right.The advantage being you could get more roll or less depending if on what side you had it on.Say your car is sliding up and not taking a set.Try moving it more to the right.Your rear % would stay the same going from side to side.

I would agree with moving it side to side.
