Just to be sure I have understood: each shock cap must to be drilled with two holes of 1,2mm?(correct?)

But zero rebound is good only for very tight tracks with a very high grip or I can use zero rebound also outdoor on asphalt track with less than medium grip? I always knew that a percentage of rebound is good when the grip is not so high and/or track is a little bit bumpy? Am I right?

Rebound must be the same for all shock or is it possible to use different percentages of rebound between front and rear?

Thank you so much (!) in advance for clarifying it.

Ciao!

Zero rebound is good for tracks that have higher grip. If your running on parking lot level grip situations, i would run about 10% rebound. I would keep it the same on all four springs and not mess with different rebound settings.

Hi moraccio, sorry for the late reply.

I wouldn't say "shock cap must be drilled", but that's what i almost always run with. I think it works well on almost any track condition/layout.

To adjust the car for lower or higher traction, i personally don't use the rebound adjustment as i think it affects more like piston bound or rebound speed.

Yes, i think it's good to have different rebound percentage on front and rear shock. I know people have different opinions but this is how i basically do.

I hope it helps.
Thanks,

Unfortunately it seems that they do not ship to Europe, only USA and Canada.
