    Why is it that when you lift a /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif and put on the raised steering arm your turning radius gets bigger??? It doesn't make sense to me... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Larger diameter tires force you to have a larger turning radius, so even if your drag link and everything is adjusted the same, your turning radius gets larger. That's physics or geometry, or something like that. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif/forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
