Default T2R Help

I race my t2r in the oval class. As i am entering one of the corners it sometimes hooks around real hard.......almost like the back tire are coming off the ground or the nose is digging real hard. There is a little bumb there. do i need to put in heavier shock oil if that is the case to stop it from rebounding so quick?

Many times a hooking problem (in any class) can be caused by a front suspension that is too soft. That causes the front end to dive too much and if the shock bottoms out, it hooks. Thicker oil in the front end would be a good start. If you're pretty happy with the setup I would try the oil first and see if it helps.

Might need stiffer springs or even ride height being too low might effect the front end bottomming out.
