    Since his lf is on the ground, whats your best guess how he's keeping it there?

    It doesn't share dynamic roll centers with the other cars. You can work on either end of the car, or both to achieve that.

    His lf still comes up, just not as bad as it should.

    Droop isn't the problem.

    heavy suspension parts, heavy tie down/limiter.
    I think there should be lifeguards in the genepool.

    More rf travel. Less lr travel.
    More left weight. Different spring rates.

    Pretty long list of things can change chassis attitude.

    If speaking in generalities, yes. Ghopper has already narrowed it down.

    So, how has Overton figured out how to get more rf travel than the other top LH cars?

    He hasn't. Getting the rf lower just moves one end of the roll axis lower. You can always move what hits and get more travel, but that's not it.

    Doesn't look like it me me. If he did, it doesn't explain the way the chassis works.

    I'm thinking Overton is looking at ways to get around the droop rule and get more aero angle on the deck.
    I think the biggest question on my mind is, did he move his RR bars up to compensate for the difference in push point angle?
    The smash loads we are seeing on these smashers are nothing more than we used to adjust on scales except, if done right and we know the finished height the car is running at, we can closely predict the spring load on the tire.
    To keep the LF on the ground we can do a bunch of different things.
    As far as RF compression now, I think our new stopping point is the rack.
    I already saw in Florida, a couple of teams cutting their bumpers back and putting more spring steel holding the RF nose up, only to let it collapse as it hits the ground. This would get us around any RF nose height rule by just letting the RF self adjust to any height it wants.
