Default suspension height question

Should the suspension of the rear be the same height as the front? If no, which should be higher?

Default RE: suspension height question

general on a high preformance car you want the front lower than the back. back in the dark ages we would set the maxi-wdege cars lower in the front by 1 to 2 inches measured on the rocker panel. if a car is lower in front the air will keep the front stuck to the ground better. also on 1:1 cars it lets the front lift on launch transferring weight to the rear. if the front isnt lower it cant transfer weight. the same ideas work on scale cars. i set my on road jato to 1/4 on the front, on the frame between the front tires, and the back a little higher. this is on a flat and smooth surface. if your pavement is bumpy give it more clearnce.
