Do you mean better than is what is in the rulebook?  you can now pretty much modify to what it takes to get bottom of seat to 13" . What the rule book pictures suggest is how they should  look when you are done, smooth and pretty not hacked and mangled.

Yes the pictures in the rule book. Those pictures are not very clear to see how it was smooth and sharp edge free. Are there any other pictures that show this better?

Tom L. came up with the best (so far) idea on how to extendthe tires out 1". Fab a 1" spacer to go between your axle and your spindle mount.It's a little tricky to drill the holes on an angle, but doable if you take your time, assemble it with some grade 8 bolts, fab new tie rods and you should be good,

thanks Tom!

A couple ways to widen, 1. 1" wider rim    2.like Tom says put spacers in at heim. quick and easy way would be all thread connecters. heim would thread in on one side and grade 8 bolt on the inside.  3. remove front axle and cut in center and add 2" spacer and then lengthen tie rods.   Any of these are not really that hard or to expensive to do, but like I said before I have ran it already and really did not see much difference.

George I will belive it when I see it !!!!  lol !!!
