This results in less ability to pull the camber link outward toward the outside of the corner and produce chassis roll. Raising the ride height up, as we all know, increases roll, so correcting ride height in this case replaces some of the lost chassis roll.

In theory I doubt you feel it. If you change it like 4-5 mm yea

ah, ok. I have not had a chance to talk to the locals yet. I am curious to see what the C and D main guys think. I never fully trust what the Amain guys have to say. Sponsorship's make you lie, lol. Humpty is usually pretty straight about his opinion on things like this though.

I can definitely feel the difference between 1mm of ride height, regardless of the cause.

De-groove with 320, then finish up with 600.

I go a little OCD, 400, 1000 then 1200-1500. Smooth like glass, shines like a mirror.

That's fine for thrust rings, but you should probably not go more than 800 on drive rings. The drive rings need traction on the balls—this is why we use black grease in the thrust (very slippery) and diff lube on the drive rings (actually not nearly as slick and allows for lube while maintaining grip on rings.)

Cmon Leigh for 35-40 bucks you got to wait for somebody to tell you if it works. And C and D guys to boot! Try it... we piss away money like that for tires that don't work all the time. And if you don't like it keep it as a tuning option or sell it
