Tighter lines?

Hi there,
I have a track only RC 51. It's an SP-1 with SP-2 forks and swingarm.
I would like it to hold a tighter line in the corners. It seems other riders (on other bikes) can take a line about 4-6 feet tighter than me. I'm trying like hell to get in there, but it just wants to go with the wider arc.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Lower front end, raise rear end, or both, or other?

Cheers

Less ground clearance lowering the front. I'd try maybe 5mm and try it.

Mine is 8mm lower at the front and has an Öhlins 46HRCSL on the back end. It holds a line really well and doesn't slap

Keep the wire tight

5mm

Oye
Menos distancia al suelo que baja el frente. Intentaría tal vez 5 mm y lo intentaría.
