what springs and shocks do you have?

front tires 2 off wheels. 225 left front 235 right front
rear offsets change depending on the track 235 on right side 225 on the left side.
left front is always at 16 psi
right front between 26-28 psi
For a wet or tacky track you move the RR tire out and the LR in. For a dry track do the opposite, move the RR in and LR out. for example:

heat race : tacky
LF: 2" b.s. RF: 2" b.s.
LR: 3" b.s. RR 2" b.s.

Main : dry
LF : 2" b.s. RF : 2" b.s.
LR : 2" b.s. RR : 3" b.s. w/ 1/2" spacer

santa

you could loosen even further for heat by adding a spacer to the RR, and you could tighten even further for main by adding a spacer to the LR.

Bought a Hobby from out of town and it has an aircleaner cutout in the hood with the air cleaner sticking out about 1 1/2 inch... would that pass tech in Bakersfield?........ also headers?

No, headers aren't allowed for a hobby.

We can't cut holes in the hood for air cleaners either, you could probably pop-rivet a piece of metal to cover and close the hole though.
