    First day I got my switchblade I mounted it drop through, got way too much wheel bite so top mounted it and never looked back. That's just me though, give it a try yourself, only takes a few minutes to change it.

    Just try it, and if you don't like it, just put it back the way it was...

    no need to really post a forum thread about it dude. It's preference more than anything.

    I would do it. It will give you much better lean and turn. The switchblade dropthrough feels kinda dead to me.

    A friend of mine top mounted his, and I don't think he's changed it since.

    Rode it once, felt that it was more responsive when trying to turn.

    Wow, you must have had it set up interestingly, when mine was dropped through I couldn't get it to bite. Like even pushing on the truck with my arms.

    But yes, it is a good call, I do like the feel of the Switchblade topmounted, because it actually feels like you are using the bushings.

    Much more fun top mounted plus no need to worry about rail bite.
