    I'm betting kragmeister is a good Pennsylvania "Dutch"man, who tends to do things right, follow through and tie up loose ends. :)

    As I said, seriously, the entire assembly is designed so groceries can be secured behind it using the net.

    IIRC it's for groceries., i.e., with the floor raised as in your photo, groceries or similar held in place behind the net. Or fish. :)

    Wish I had another idea, but best I can suggest is to manually downshift as required to keep the revs above the current 55 hz / 1300 RPM drone band. That at least is easy and costs very little.

    While spec apparently allows for up to 0.6 positive camber, which might be OK if only consideration is tire wear, I've found the steering feel is definitely better with negative camber.
