for most everyone, it is a mistake in their setup sheet

in the future we will have a production version of a part that some team drivers have been running -- the flexible caster block. it allows the metal am06 to behave more like a plastic c-hub.

Ride height is relative to many things. I would say between 5.5 and 6mm ride height front and rear is normal unless the track is super bumpy or something.

I never run the front higher than the rear. Usually the opposite or flat.

3mm of droop seems high to me but its really hard to say, tires, traction, setup, there are many factors that are deciders in setting droop and ride height.

Sorry if this does not answer your questions specifically but not knowing anything about the track or your setup thats about as good as I can do.

I ran my A700 on asphalt two year ago..and it need more rear grips...the Stock A700 chassis it is a little too stiff..The galaxy track is very bumpy more like the four season track .
you may want to cut your top deck like what Mike Hanulec did ...I think he call the T shape top deck..

Hate to take this thread back 10 posts but Kyle is not in the bubble, that is in fact a lie! He is in the smoke though, that is a fact and his speed secret.
