Rear Axle Setup: equal distance to hubs or offset?
« on: April 10, 2018, 12:19:03 AM »
when setting up the rear axle, is it best to mount the hubs equal distance from center? or is it better to make one side further out then the other? for example, the left being wider than the right? I did a lot of searching on this and couldn't find an answer for the rear, lots of front setup but not rear. thanks for any input

If your rules allow offset it can beneficial.

Depends what you are running.  Class.  Tire size.  Chassis height.
