Moving the axle backwards will negatively affect traction. There will be less weight transfer onto the rear. If traction isn't a problem (but it always is) then move it back. Many old-school racers used to move the axle forward to get more weight on it.

If you're really serious about racing it, then the looks will have to take a back seat to functionality.
