How did you change the ride height? Did you change the linkage + slide forks? Or did you increase spring preload?

If you just changed links your setup should still be very close.

I know.......I know.......you were going to tell me the next time you would be at the track.



......when you going again? Judging by your body postion in your signature, it appears you're getting faster. Did you get a chance to pick up some times while you were out there?
