reduce barpressure on sonic 2

Postby marauderen » Sat Sep 01, 2018 9:49 am

love my sonic2 but hate that it has more barpressure than my speed 5´s. Is there a way to reduce barpressure without interfering to much om flying characteristic. Maybe something like the old wac line on speed1 with the possibility of soft steering setup. (Don´t know if this wac is possible as there are another line setup on sonic kites)

WAC line increases bar pressure a lot. You can slack Z, which reduces bar pressure but changes kite. Other option is to change the mixer to more pulleys, but bar throw will increase.

Let me know if you need further help.

I think the Sonic 2 has reasonably light bar pressure, you can consider the Sonic Race. 3 pulleys and lines bridle lines directly out to the tips results in very light bar pressure.
