rear a arms & width

Getting ready to order the 3/4" housers & elkas for the front but not sure what to do in the rear still thinking about rear I know wayne said he had a quad with them on there but if you look at some of his photos doesnt look like he is running the housers. I am asking for feed back. Does widening the rear make it harder to turn or add push compared to the stock wide with both setups using elka shocks looking for a opinion from some folks who have tried both. Thanks Scott

I know you want feedback... but I don't run Houser rears... I run Alba spacers for the rear... I think Wayne still runs those as well

In Waynes latest Baja 500 video it looks like he's running stock rear arms with spacers.....?

Also if you ran OMF rear wheels and Maxxix tires that would have to be at least +3/4" anyway.

I like Houser stuff (i have them on my 450) but I dont like the +3/4" setup. It's like they tried to make a setup that could suite every condition but ended up being a compromise in most conditions........we need a set up that is either wide or narrow not a little wider but not wide enough.........not for that amount of money anyway.

how does the quad turn with & with out the spacers, what is the major difference. my understanding is it helps stability is this correct but it reduces turning ability or makes it harder to turn is this correct? PS ozlinc look at the photos on his website for score races looks like a stock rear end.

All i did to the rear of mine is flip the stock wheels and i can tell you, you will have so much more confidence riding, try flipping your wheels first then you will know, it's free and takes 5 minutes....i really dont notice much of a turning radius difference, i always thought that was your frontend not your rear that determined that at a slow speed ???

i know when i put my alba spacers on the front it doesnt turn as well now, but with the rear widened, and the added stability of the front widened, it slides like a damn dream even with 24' tires

Did you have to remove your mud scrapers? Can you post some pics?

did you notice any difference in the turning radius ?

is this not the easiest way to figure out if you want to extend your atv ? i mean 52' may be a little extreme, but the stability is addicting ain't it ? I tear the woods up now !!!

I added spacers in the front ONLY s that i have "feelers" for my rears, in ohter words i can judje what my quad can fit or not fit between alot easier with the front spacers and some needs to call in a doctor because the thing lokks SICK
