    pinion angle question

    When setting my pinion angle, does it matter if I have the street tires and rims on? Will it be the same when I put my drag radials on on my smaller rimes? Seems like it would make a difference, anyone know for sure?

    Shouldn't matter unless the diameter of the two tires are different.

    I think they may be but I will check it, so if they are slightly different it will affect the angle. Thought so just wasn't positive.

    It would slightly change the angle of the driveshaft.

    I thought tire height only affected ride height? We always set up pinion angles on roundy-rounders for where the car was under accelleration. Different tracks used different tires and we never altered it.
