Sort of ASN Canada Rules.  We run 55″ rear at our club.  I did have a super soft axle in too and that didn’t help, I just couldn’t get the lift.  Considering this is a 2-cycle chassis I do have 50mm rear parts.  I’m going to experiment this weekend on jacking effect through caster and ackerman adjustments and adding in seat struts to the outside of the bearing carriers to get the damn rear to lift.

One thing I noticed when replacing the rear axle is that when securing the two bearing carriers when I tightened the top bolts on one of them the axle started dragging.  I shimmed the top bolts to stand the carrier up more and it didn’t drag.  Are my pinch bolts too tight and not allowing the bearings to twist?
