I'm building a Spirit T and I'm ready to order a set of rims and I need to know how to determine the back space of the rim. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm in the same boat . What is a workable backspace if you are planning on using a P295 or a 305 on a 10" rim?, and does it matter whether you use a shot or long tailshaft transmission or which is best

Thanks Lee, I think I can figure out what will work and what won't work from your drawing.

I used a short tail shaft in mine car.
