Does the Brocks universal strap fit, and more importantly, does it make an impact on being able to launch harder/drop 60' times without excessive wheelie-ing?  Trying to work on getting 60' times down from high 1.7s/low 1.8s, and was hoping this would be a positive step.  Anyone have experience with this?  Thanks!

Tried it last night, helped significantly with consistency on the 60', dropped 2 tenths overall, and almost completely solved front end lift.  Changed behavior when too aggressive on launch from wheeling to spinning the tire, but raised the threshold significantly.  Need more work to practice how to launch better with it, but a two-tenth improvement and much improved consistency for cheap is nice.  Worth experimenting with.  The Brocks strap fits with some Home Deport extended bolts and washers for the caliper mounting bolts

Sounds like it was a big help.     :up:

Less air in rear tire can help
