Well, horses for courses I suppose. I’m tall with a big upper body. When you see a pic of me racing in a pack you say look at dad racing with all those little kids but, we’re all the same age. Yes, it’s “funny” how a little extra vertical CG changes so much in chassis flex. Also not all tubing is created equal. I’ve driven a 30mm topkart that felt really stiff and a 32mm CRG that was a limp noodle. Even if you find someone on the same chassis there are so many variables you just never know how close to the point you can climb until you try it yourself.
