So I'm an "asshole" is that a Bad thing?

« on: March 31, 2016, 05:19:23 PM »

Well...car is complete. Just gotta scale it and throw a tune on it.
I decided that I'd repaint the whole car this coming winter. Race season is just to damn close and to tell you the truth I'm really tired of working on this damn thing....
My question is, what do you think of the stance? To high in the rear? Too low? Opinions please.

Seems a little high in the back. I lowered the back on the Falcon to help with wheelies. Do you have the IC setup already?

No.... Was going to scale it this weekend .  That's the reason I'm asking opinions on the ride height that I've got it set at now.
 It's pretty close to where it was before ,  maybe an inch or a little more than that higher.  Front end hasn't changed

Car looks great! I think it is a little high in the back, but function may override appearance. Good luck and be safe.
