How much are you leaving on? What rpm are you leaving at? DA's all around imo. Slow the front extension down to stop the f/e from pulling the wheels. Tighten the front compression so it keeps the nose up and gradually returns to ride height. In the rear, loose extension with tight compression to keep the tire driven into the ground. I see the front wheel come off the ground, but you can't keep them up there, so it unloads the rears as your fronts are touching back down. Stop the front wheels from leaving the track surface by slowing front extension.

advice.
