Just a quick note about our handling problem on our last attempted run at the WOS meet. We changed from a 16 tooth primary sprocket to a 15 tooth sprocket so we had to adjust the rear axle back to get the chain tension correct and after getting home and removing all of the body panels I could see that the shock mounting bolt on the left rear shock was impinging on the territory of one of our tubular balk heads, binding the suspension. Duke did the right thing by turning off.
