    i was wondering how much adjustability is in the COG my cog in my current zra is 2.5 and its`not ttippy enough would 3.5 be to tippy or should i spec it for 3.? another thing i was wondering is i transfer into my car with a slide board i thought i read somewhre on here that having the frame an inch longer makes it easier if you use a board.i dnt know if im explaining this right but if someone could help me out itd be awesome thanks!

    JHM - I agree with fuente on this. Add the extra inch. I am in a ZR now and just got the new Z10 last week, which has the same COG adjustment on it. When you get your chair, the COG will be whatever you requested but you can then adjust it 1 1/4" forward and backward of that center point for more or less tippy. Since you are in a ZRA already, adjust it first and see how you like it. Thats the purpose of the ZRA. Once you spec the ZR, there's no going back...

    Remember, you are shortning your chair. So it will be tippier anyway than your current longer chair at the same cog spec, follow me
