    gettin the right stance

    i have an ws6, but i have always loved the way a firehawk sits compared to the way the ws6 sits. what is the best way to get that stance or very close to it still being able to handle and perform well in a straight line .

    +1. They don't sit any different and they have the same size tires.

    Best advice I can give you is call Sam, you will be surprised how much he is willing to help you and talk to you so that you meet your goals and don't end up spending more then you need. In fact the last two times I have bought from him I ended up spending less then I planned thanks to his advice.
