Stock steering is not too bad although a front end mod does help a lot. Moving the front wheel forward using different trees will lower ground clearance unless fork extensions are utilized. . Leading legs can retain ground clearance if built right. With a leading link you can set ground clearance to whatever you wish up front and still reduce trail. Stock ground clearance is minimal on stroms anyhow. A good subframe is a necessity. We typically do not like to go less than 48" on track width nor less than 9" of wheel lead depending on other faqctors.
Claude - Stop being so damn modest and post some of the pics you have of the blue Vee you built with LL front end.
Never mind, I found some from the USCA Rally in 2011 in Dayton.
To the owner of this rig, my apologies for not remembering your name but I'm sure someone will chime in who does remember.
