    Hey everyone,

    Another newbie question (gotta learn somehow /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif):

    What is the reason for moving axle's forward or backward?

    better aproch and departure angles, plus more clearance on the firewall moving the front axle forward.

    Ah, how is it that the axle is moved forward?
    Doesn't that mess with the steering and such?

    Thanks,
