Re: Lee 670 vs Lee 800?
Just got off the phone with Tom Lee. Another advantage to running the 800 if you can and your car has a stock frame...the weight difference when going with a 670 box actually moves the center of gravity "up" so to speak. It removes the 'lower' weight so the car is more top heavy. Even if it's just a very slight amount. The way he put it was "if a guy wins a race with a 670 box, he did it in spite of the box not due to it".
If the 800 fits, your car has a stock frame and you don't just want to spend extra money..use it.
