ss38K, I know exactly how you feel. Eljojo will give you the facts man, just the facts. Can you tell I was a Dragnet fan. No joking, he will tell you what you need.

ss38k Sidebite in my neck of the woods isn't really something that can be measured mainly felt be the seat of your pants. If your skating or loose you may need more.
Its like forward bite(traction) either you have plenty or not enough you can't rate it numerically. Having less left side weight and having weight up high on the right are ways of helping gain more sidebite.
