i'm up in the air as to whether or not rim balance has a dominating factor in some of these. star beasts have 30-40% more mass in the rim than dx's.
This makes the most sense....
Moving weight to the outside of the rim results in an increased moment of inertia. A disc with a higher moment of inertia will have proportionally higher gyroscopic precession. Leading to higher "overstability".
