What is a (when people say they mount shocks on their cars..) Shock?
What is a Damper?
What is a Suspension?
What is a Shock Absorber?
Here is my Friday answer, hikk.
When you mount shocks to your car you're messing with the electronics so that every time someone touches it he gets electric shock.
Dampers are stuff you add to the shocks so they're not lethal, you damp the shock.
Shock absorber is the thing you carry around to absorb the shock when you touch your car. You wouldn't want get shocked every time you touched your car. Therefore you need the shock absorber.
Last but not least is the Suspension. It's when turn marshals are suspicious that you've mounted shocks to your car and pretend not to see it when you've rolled it over. In other words they suspend your car until the end of the race.
