Author Topic:   Chasis Set up?

Hello all, I need a quick question answered. We are setting up our chasis, with a front track width of 62" and a rear of 60". My question is which tires need to line up with each other the left side or the right side? Thanks for the help

I agree with what Zeroracing says, but the general rule of thumb is to have the left side tires in line on a dirt car and the right sides in line on an asphalt car for baseline setup. Like Zeroracing mentioned, set it this way and check your results on the scales. You may want to use different offsets or spacers to help you acheive this. For instance, I use 1" spacers with long studs on the rears and RF. This allows me to run the same offsets, but gives me adjustability. Typically, when it gets dry slick, you'll want to space the rear wheels to the left and the RF out. Just a idea for you to think about.

I need to find a set up sheet on a 4bar modified. Been to the tool box but still cant find one.
