I would have to say that when I dropped the entire susp
I gained alot more than those who had been racing for a while.
What I mean is, on this bike, I had the forks dropped and the
bones put on when I got the biek brand new. Raced 1-2 times like that, then had the rear put all the way down and added the straps for my 3rd time out and have kept it there ever since. ( although my girlfriend hates that she can't ride aymore)
I went from 10.7's to 10.4's right away and now am running
as low as 10.10/10.20's. ALOT has to do w/ the susp set up
but also trial and error ( experience )
In my opinion, it makes it easier to launch when lowered and
lets you concentrate on the lights, shifting, etc rather than
having to wrestle the front down during hard launches...
not to mention the bike looks meaner when its 1 1/2'" of the
deck.... <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT="
