Hey Jason, how is your much anticipated setup guide coming?

And buddy correct me if I'm wrong on my understanding about the standoffs under the hingepin block. Shimming under or using the longer standoffs underneath the hingepin block 'reduces' camber gain under compression thus producing an on power push in low to low-med bite situations (could an adjustment in static camber and front tire compound compensate for this loss?). But is pretty much the ticket in high-bite situations.
Is my understanding correct on this?

It does reduce camber gain when you raise the hinge pin block which does reduce front traction under suspension compression. Going to more static camber will add front bite back but i dont like to go to more than 1.5 degrees. I just remove shims if i need to.

Guys - Anyone messing around with the side-link "spring rates"? Just wanted to check the correct sequence of adjustments. From Low - High do we use 1.2mm Long; 1.2mm Short; 1.5mm Long; 1.5mm Short ??

I haven't had need to change the setting yet, just wanted to double check on the correct range in case it comes up.

Thanks

I wish people would stop announcing to the world when they pm someone. I bet there's 10000 extra pages on this forum all dedicated to that. Sorry for the extra chatter, I just can't understand why people do this. After all, this isn't the "I just pm'd Jason, did you?" thread, it's the "BMI Racing "Copperhead 12" discussion and support" thread.
