You can try a shorty or saddle. I know Joe Pillars likes the shorty but he's running 2.5wt lower shock oil to make up for the weight difference in packs. Shorty feels faster and saddles is a bit more sluggish but easy to drive. You also have to factor in the amount of traction u have as saddles would be better for looser tracks but also good for high grip. Shorty for high grip.

Raise the tranny 1mm.. And if you shim the RR hanger 2mm you'll get zero anti-squat..

I tried the gull wing on mid motor but cars just continues to roll and it doesnt square up fast enough to get in throttle early.. Having a straight arm cars square up faster and levels the car quicker so you can get on the throttle early without the rear getting a little twitchy..

Dude I already posted his set up a few days ago on here.

I will guess that those pistons are 2x1.6, 3x1.4 and 4x1.3 since they don't list the size of the holes.

I'll be ordering all 3 once they are available.

Default 521-1 arms

If I change to 521-1 arms, what other parts do I need? Short shock bottoms? Longer hinge pin? Type-B or B-2 rear hub?

i dont think you need anything else. i think you just have to readjust shock height and maybe change oil weight?

You can use the RB6 hinge pins, but will need to ream out one end of the arm and use a 2mm spacer on the outside at either end.

Default spur gear

Does that gear require the Avid pads as well? any other things needed? to use this gear? Slipper plates? Slipper pads?

Thanks for your help
