    LinQ system work great. Had no problems with this system on a 137 viper and tunnel is 2+ inches shorter on a winder. Should have no issues. Brp fuel caddy as well.

    Steering is a tad heavy at this point but 0 darting. Going to pull up ski tips to help with steering.

    Don.....I am setting up a LE like yours here this week.

    I installed 6.9s and it now feels like EPS, even with 8inch signature BRP carbides, gotta love pilots.

    I tried that setting on center coil, but did not like the ride at all, it would buck abit there, so with the steering being so light with the pilots I backed of about half of that.(7-5/8" total spring length) and that smoothed things out, all else I have set to FULL SOFT, and also removed the blocks, but the LE IMO needs longer straps as it has very little transfer, does not look like they are long enough to loosen? When compared to my doo the straps are much tighter.

    I have my center shock about the same as you Dan. Everything on soft but when I get into the rough stuff I have to dial the rear compression up to #2

    With the C&A I backed off the front ski pressure as well. Not EPS but handles flat

    6.9 I will have to try!
