Does having a narrower rear track width (vs. the front) have any effect on decreasing your turning radius at all???

Thanks!

That's what I thought. . .I just wanted to make sure. . .

. . .decreasing our turning radius is a primary goal for our SAE vehicle for next years series and it's something I want to take into account for my own personal vehicle that I'm starting to design now.

Thanks Dump!

Is there any particular ratio that one should shoot for. . .too wide and you lose the benfit. . .too narrow and, well you're too narrow. . .

Thanks!!!

90 X 125 seems to work well. If you want something smaller scale it!!

I would think that if you have a differential that it wouldn't have an effect. Perhaps a spool would create some sort of drag that could inhibit turning???
