I quess I dont get why you would build a suspension with x amount of travel and than pull it down with a winch to fix the handling (climbs aside). It would seem a sway bar would be easier/better. Anyway, sorry for cluttering up a nice build thread.

i usually left slack in both winches until needed i think they are an over used trend. 90 percent of the time i used them was when descending or side hilling so the suspension wouldnt unload. when climbing i wouldnt suck the front down i would winch in until the rope got tight then bump the switch to back it off a bit.

i found that having the front to tight hurt me more than it helped when trying to crest a hill i would always belly out.
