To be a bit more precise: The rear wheel builds up a lot of gyroscopic force. To get
a bike to turn you then need harder steering springs. To make a bike controlable with
harder springs you go and reduce Dual Rate on the steering. All no problem up to now.
Most bikes do not have enough torsional rigidy. So you are forcing the front wheel
into a turn and the rear wants to stay up. You are twistforcing the bike into a turn.
Still no problem. But the moment you hit a bump and a wheel is in the air the bike
releases the stress and you are flying. Also if you are pressing the bike down at
high angle leaning the wheels also loose contact suddenly and again you get this
whiplash effect. I saw this so often this year standig down on the track:

Moral: Do more voluntary marshalling

Sound very scary.
If I use your swing arm box and a rear swing arm made of high quality CFK whicih is selling, would situation be better?
