Default Shock mounting position on dirt indoor track


Wondering about people's thoughts on maintaining shock positions in a more inclined position (inner hole on shock tower & outer hole on arms) for both front and rear shocks on a loamy, dirt indoor track? Not sure how bumpy and how big the jumps are on this track.

I normally run an sc10 on an indoor clay track that's relatively smooth with my front and rear shocks mounted more inclined as noted above.

Generalized questions get generalized answers so...

SC trucks are very, very, very, sensitive to tire changes and not nearly as sensitive to "minor" changes like shock position, camber links, etc. IMO. In other words, make sure you have the right tires for the new track but if your current setup usually feels pretty good, don't make any other changes before trying it.

I ran my SC10 on a tight-ish medium bite indoor track and on a much larger, low bite outdoor track and did well at both with only the aforementioned tire change.
