Just wondering what tuning steps you guys running cal-tracs take......
Pre-load adj, upper, lower hole etc. trying to get this thing to 60 ft.
Any suggestions?

I have spent some time tuning my Cal-tracs, problem is, I'm running street tires. If you are on slicks, I don't think I'll be much help. Here's what I got though.

When I installed mine I had them too tight. Everytime I hit the gas the tires blew off. The cure was to adjust them so there was room for a nickel to fit between the spring and the spring stop bolt. The tracs where hitting too hard and blowing the street tires before enough weight had transferred. I am using the lower hole.
