Not too sure, as track condition, tyre etc all make a difference. Maybe the car is understeering and causeing excessive wear or the car has too much front grip. Experiment with a harder front oil, and/or maybe a softer spring

is your track layout is technical ??

if technical, front tyres will wear out quite fast..

One question, I see under the notes for the rear " Running Long Rear Camber Link"

Does it mean he is using the Outer whole on the Hub carrier ?

Hey Frank,

Yeah i was running it on the outer hole on the hub. I found the car carried better corner speed and had more mid-exit steering. Also the track had a lot of fast sweepers, and the long rear link really gave it good steering into and around them.

Hope this helps, if you have any more questions, let me know,

Ryan.

Hello

Is the BD5 shocks / dampers available as sets? If yes, can anyone let me know the part no.? I wanna have additional dampers for testing different degree of oil easier but I don't wanna buy them piece by piece

Thanks.

Hello;

I ride a BD5 W and I have a doubt about the set-up.

What is the difference in behavior between long and short rear arms?? "

I understand that the shorts provide more grip,

Regards

@Martin
Is that picture shows he is using too soft tyres?
Or Does old inserts cause this ? (We re-use inserts)
Cheers
