    Besides changing the wheel base .
    It changes how the tire loads and timing.
    Back for short tight , forward for sweeping.
    Is general assumption .

    Makes the RF tire "bite" harder or less. Forward position less, rearward more.

    The right front should only be moved back in very high bite short tracks, that tire will load and unload quicker so it can cause a push on exit

    Not posting to dispute anything posted, Asking for more clarification to help others understand because I feel here is a prime example of things that just don't make sense to most racers, So please help explain If rear hole makes more bite, why would one only want to do it on a well gripped up track surface ?
