Shock mount positions - what for?
On my TB-02 chassis I can reposition the top shock mount to any one of 4 positions. Effectively a more vertical shock versus a more horizontal shock position.
It seems to me that leverage is the reason for this adjustment - ie. effectively lowering the spring rate (more horizontal) or raising the spring rate (more vertical). In addition, a minor change in the wheel travel and reduced dampening effect of the shock. Is this true?
What is the resultant handling characteristic of a more vertical shock versus a more horizontal shock?
