i'm on 42 shore all round and still flip, using the new darker blue springs and the harder new rear sway bars as well.

ride height abt 3mm front and back... front roll bar at 60degree

still flip ergggggg .... maybe a softer spring to counter the effect?

or maybe raise the shocks to vertical to have less side bite?

Guys, I don't have a setup board but I'm keen to start bulding. Any ballpark numbers on the pivot ball assemblies? Thx.

The a roll center position will give you less rear side bite!

I suspect you're right - Japanese foam, but would like to know for sure.
We use Active tyres and these have exactly the same rims, only yellow.

If your rolling on corner entry reduce rear droop and slow down a bit, if rolling on exit reduce front droop and take it easier on the throttle.

Do you have calipers? I can give you the gap between the arm and hub. I'd have to measure when I get home.

Try stiffer springs and make sure your front suspension toes out also. When its toe in it will tend to flip more. I had the same problem as well. You might want to check your front tire diameter is not too small compared to the rears. I think stiffer springs will have less bite. Try that first, then play around with the suspension angles. Good Luck
