Hey Charles,

I usually run 5-6mm droop up front and in hole #3 on the arm so I do not have that problem....
You should just unscrew the shock end 1-2 turns to make you shock longer.

Question:
Why are you running your shocks all the way out on the arm??
Running them out there would give you allot less steering and "Kill" your front tires in no time I assume.....

despite making track width narrower or wider,
what is the effect of :
- front inboard toe-n vs inboard toe-out?
- rear inboard toe-in vs inboard toe out?
thanks,

Cheer Eirik. I am running them in that hole as it was on the Marc Reinhard (spelling?) starter set-up which i have been runnin for a few weeks now but i've always been taught that a more leaned shock is softer than a more up-right shock so it gives you more grip at that end or have i been told 'porky-pies' ?

Charles

Default Set ups...

anyone notice the rear toe in for Numan's and Rheinard's set ups from Reedy?

Numan had -4.0 deg of rear toe in.

Rheinard had -3.0 of rear toe in (and +1.5 of toe out on the front)

EDIT: im all confused now.

Marc has 3.0deg and Josh has 4.0deg !!

I assume that it is a typo in Josh's setup, should be 1XB instead of 1XD

A more leaned shock will be softer initially and more progressive than an upright shock.
But as you move your shocks out on the arm, it will make the suspension stiffer, less steering and it will let the tires work harder....
Leaning the shock on the tower is a different story, normally more steering as you lean them inn more!!

I think Marc's setup was in the #2 hole on the arm, not sure, but I suggest you try it in the middle, #3

Probably because he is using 27mHz.
