My immediate reaction was the same as curtis73, but then I realized that, when the Ramchargers were moving the axle forward back in the sixties, drag slicks had miserable traction compared to those available today. When I consider the more common problem today of excessive wheelstands, I'm inclined to encourage you to move the axle assembly back.
