But two more questions: 1) On a bumpy track with low grip, to get more forward traction under acceleration is it more or less anti-squat (I've seen both arguments in this thread) and 2) does anti-squat work different in on-road, as all the on-road set-ups I've seen (including the XXX Main, which is a great source of info) say LESS anti-squat equals MORE rear grip on-power.
1) On a bumpy track you'd be inclined to reduce anti-squat because in that situation you DO want the tires & chassis to move in the same direction, to absorb the bumps rather than hit them. If the suspension absorbs all of the bumps it'll help keep the chassis level and the ride smooth. If you've ever seen a 1:1 desert racer go flying through a straight whoops section at 90mph you'll see what I mean: The tires are going up and down like crazy but the chassis stays in pretty much the same stance.
2) can't help you there, I'm almost purely an offroad guy
