This is prob the wrong place to ask but since we all got 10s Ill figure ill ask. Why do some race car minis or autoX minis have 10x6 and some 10x4.5 (or 4.75 rose petals). Whats the difference? does one size handle better?

It'd have to do with the specific class rules and regulations. Historic classes have close to standard size wheels and the more extreme classes have wider rims

Sadly I don't. I've been working on what should have been a relatively simple suspension refresh in fits and start, but that has stretched into several years. In that picture the only thing in the back of the car is the rear subframe. All the suspension components are on the workbench. My goal is to push to finish this summer so I can drive it again and then get some better pictures.

 

I do expect they'll stick out a fair bit more than my previous wheel/tire combo so flares will be necessary at some point.
