I can't wait to see the data you come up with. I'm not surprised to hear that the DFVs are suboptimal in a full-race setup with super sticky rubber.

I just don't think they ever intended for them to be used in that manner.

I want the DFV for the streets with occasional use (read less then 1 time a year) at track.  I want pot hole soaking, expansion crack disappearing, soft as a cloud gooeyness.  :)

You have a Raptor for all that.

I bet the DFV feel stiff in the back because of the ratio of the lower arm. The rear has more leverage than the front. An XX/XX setup doesn't usually seem to work all that well. X/X(.88) seems to make more sense.

Front is .6" per inch at the wheel
Rear is .68" per inch at the wheel

An 11kg front is the same at 9.68kg rear. Running a 9 rear being a tad softer than the 11 front.

In my defence, they do get used in a practical sense.
I go on raptor runs pretty regularly, and they’re usually at night. When we stop every hour to let everybody catch up, I give the suspension a once over to make sure nothing is coming apart. Got tired of doing that with a flashlight that I was constantly misplacing.
I don’t drive around with them on  :D

That is a fantastic cover-up story. Well done!

I have never seen that either.  I'm still trying to find a good jump and test the jump sensor on my raptor!  ha!
