Gen 4 shock pivot angle

This is unrelated to my current spinning issues because it's been this way since i've had the bike but I am curious, previous owner changed the pivot angle of the rear shock said he learned it from people at the drag strip or whatever and I am just curious if it's helping me any or hurting me. Stock would be to flip these around and go off the outside holes. I am sure if I flip it around ill have to adjust my bike height and whatnot so I just wanted to know if anybody has heard of this before. As it stands I've gone 1.43 60' at 64" with not quite a full season of stretched bike riding nor strip riding but close. That was my best tho I average a little higher.

Here is stock http://qnbikes.files.wordpress.com/2...-swing-arm.jpg

Looks like you have a lot of installed preload on that spring aswell! Would help with wheelspin.

Imma get a new tire today, if that doesn't fix it then ill start digging into the suspension. I just don't get why it worked, and very well might I add, all year last year. But not sure what's up with changing the angle.
