Big Tires To Drag Radials: The Road To RVW Means Lots Of Changes. This Isn’t Just A Tire And Wheel Swap.

While Pro Mods in RVW have been a seriously contested subject the last couple of years, taking a big tire car RVW racing isn’t as simple as just bolting on a set of radials. It requires serious changes to suspension geometry, weight, and more. But instead of just hearing about the theory, here is a video showing what actually has to happen to take a Big Tire No Time car and get it ready to head to Georgia for RVW at Lights Out 12. Besides changing up the rear suspension geometry, in a way that is often described as flipping the 4-link over upside down, weight will have to be moved. The front weight bias is going to need to be around 55 percent, even if that means making the car a little heavier. The weight bias is more important than the actual weight of the car in this case. And then there is the front suspension. Well, you get the point.

Here’s the video description from the guys at Bad Influence Garage.
