    Help me with my chairiot on wheels!

    Hi guys. Ive been messing around with adjusting my ZRA s2 but cant seem to get it right. The problem Im having is my feet that are constantly falling off my footplate. Ive ordered chair with 3" dump but it turned out to be 4". I changed that to 2" to sit straighter and engage my trunk muscles. Im a para L1. My backrest is at about 92-95 deg angle. About 14"-16" velcro adjustable. I am switching to 8" Jay3 low backrest. I have 3" casters. Im looking to get 4" x1.4. Will they fit litespeed forks? Not sure what i should do to fix my feet. When im barefoot they slide off front footplate and when i have shoes on while rolling on sidewalk my feet will bounce off footplate (not a spasm). I dont want to flip footplate because. Thank You for help.

    4x1.4 casters will help. What type of footrest?

    So i can go for wider casters no problem? Can you please post a link for sportaid with good ones. I hate how my toes point down while barefoot need to fix it. Im scared i ordered wrong size chair for me.

    4x1.4 aluminum hub soft rolls should fit the standard TiLite bearing fork. Your 1.5 COG is on the conservative side and is likely causing a significant portion of you weight to be loading the front casters. That makes every impact with a sidewalk crack a little more jarring.

    You said your toes are pointing down, and that you have an angle adjustable footplate. What about raising it slightly and angling it so your heels are lower than your toes? Also might help with feet bouncing off, I've seen some reports from people where changing the angle or height of the plate helped.
