    Another question for everyone.......

    Door car, 4 link pro mod-ish.

    Current rear end setup is all Strange. 9.5, 40 spline floater, dual pattern steel brakes with 4 3/4 and 5 inch patterns, current 16 x 16 wheels are dual pattern, 5 and 5.5.

    As my "disease" progresses and I find more carbon fiber/light parts for the car, should I stay with 5 or go to 5.5" pattern?

    New wheels when they come will be single pattern, so I am looking at all of the pros and cons of going 5.5, or is 5 the way to go? Current 5 x 5 setup is low run and has no issues. This is more of a long game question.

    Hey Scott, I have seen lots of pro mod guys including big money guys using the 5 on 5 so I don't think there would be an advantage in going to the 5 on 5.5. My former ADRL pro extreme car has 5 on 5 and ran non solid centers for eternity. -Best wishes
