106 or so and some had a preference for leading either front wheel. 1/8" toe out at the brake rotor.

Brake rotor? What is that? We never had the luxury of disc brakes back then. The 47 had the Frankland hubs with the Buick style Drums/Shoes as did Tommy's 7JR back in the I remember the first time that I had the opportunity to drive a car with disc brakes and thinking "man no wonder those guys run so good". The drum brakes kind of slowed the car down some but the disks actually "stopped" it!!

My cars had 106 to 106 1/2" wheelbase...Toe for me was always 1/8 in...Never liked toe out..Car seemed to wander around with toe out...Toe in I was in charge..The Rio's R10 was a longer car about 108" wheelbase..Toe we tried it all...H
