If faced with only putting 2 on, put them on the front (if same or narrower than rears) as driven wheels allegedly have ~no rolling resistance.
(Or at least that was AUDIs theory at one point, came up when they developed the UrQuattros, and they still went JUST as fast as 2WD despite the increased drivetrain losses)
I have just about gotten back to ~35 MPG (US) with my setup (went from MS2>MS3+changing WB setups) and the next step is going to be a 914 5 speed or LRR tires. or both, when the tires are in need of replacement.
Tire pressures and wheel alignment really start to be critical once you are trying for >35 MPG.
14point7.com has a new $99(OK, $105 this week) sealed analog-only flying lead WB system that just came out.
i think your right but i'll have to wait untill after these are cracked ect to swap them.
interesting on the front only idea, i guess it make sense, you having to shove the fronts i guess!
will look into those widebands thanks
