    bite bar basics

    How does changing the diameter of the bite bar affect handling for the cheetah 21?

    It allows for more movement of the pans... Thicker wire tightens up the pans and thinner allows more movement...

    Just try and keep the pans level.

    You can use a piece of tape across the bottom of the center section and pans to tighten the car up if you need to.

    The popular theory is more movement=looser/less movement=tighter.

    Your results may vary...

    One thing I do is try to swap out the bar with one of the same dia but piano wire... I've had too many stock bars bend on impact. Piano wire will not do that.
