    Aligning rear paddles?

    Those of you running STU's or haulers, do you think it is important to have your rear paddles perfectly aligned with each other?

    Always have it that way with my haulers on the quads but not sure if it's that important with the 16 paddle STU's?

    Never really tested it one way or another for traction/performance, but I like to match mine up exactly. At the very least it makes it were I can park the car in my garage and not have one of the paddles getting crushed on the bottom of the tire for long periods of time.

    I dont worry about that. the rpm the tires are turning means hundreds of a second difference.

    I'd guess close as possible would be best. I know on a quad when you only have 7, 8, 9... paddles it makes a difference.... Seems to pull to one side..? At least for me.

    Never noticed anything like that on my Mav, but a quad also has a straight axle in the rear

    Yeah, on a quad it does make a difference. My paddles are close to lined up but not perfect. I don't think it makes much of a difference on these things.
