How much rebound are you guys getting when you build your shocks?

Also how many o-rings in the bottom of the shock?

I know that!

I was just wondering what the general consensus on the 1 or 2 orings.

Fred,

I believe most people, including team guys, are using 1 o-ring on the bottom. That's what most every other manufacturer does anyway. I, personally, don't see any type of performance advantage to running a double o-ring seal.

As far as rebound... that depends if you have anything above the bladder or not. I know with the shock built normally with the black bladder, you could get next to zero rebound if you wanted. On my shocks with the Tamiya Red foam in, the rebound is decently fast and about 50% of the shock extension. I'm not really sure if I like it or not. It all depends on how you bleed them as well.

1 o-ring here as well. I tend to build my shocks with as little rebound as possible. I like the shock to work more as a damper and not a spring. All comes down to personal preference and what is working best with the particular set up..

Always used 1 oring to date...

I usually run a little rebound up front and none in the back.

1 O-ring on lower seal. And usually 2 O-rings on top of bladder. I like a lot of rebound on the asphalt.

If the track was smooth wouldn't you want more of a rebound? Whereas, if the track was bumpier you would want less rebound so it didn't look like a pogo stick going around the track?

2 o-rings will give you more rebound.
