I just bought a Super Acro 1. Does anyone know what the distance between the gear is supposed to be? Mine is 5'-5" from c/l to c/l of the tires. The angle of the tires is cocked in considerably. Looks very funny from the front and tire wear on the outsides is going to be considerable I'm sure. (New tires now). I have found specs. for the Acro 2 and it calls for 6' 3/4" but don't know if mine is supposed to be the same. It has bungee struts that have already had a 2" splice on each side, but I can't imagine them being 2" shorter at one time so I don't know what the splices are for except to look ugly. Since the struts are going to need surgery to lengthen them, I was thinking of just buying the Wag die spring kit for $250 and just get rid of the big bungee bag look. Any comments or advice. gha111
