Thank you very much, for the replys, i going down in oil (50 vs 70) , but the rebound i left in 0%, well the next race i test you suggest, more thiner oil and more rebound,.

Billythekid, thanks, too, is strange, because some cars are slipery with mine, and others not, i question drivers, for additives, temp of tire warmes, etc...and test, not work for me, the track is far to my home and when go i need to sleep in hotel, is expensive for me, and i only go there at important races.
I see, the same poor results, with used and new tyres, i need to wait, as you say, but i need to do good qualifying in the morning, the next are the last national race, for this year, in this track

Greetings, Luis C.

I have not, it looks pretty cool though. I know others have used their products with very good success.

The Andy Moore rubber iic set up is working great with the HBX A little less rear toe and lower roll center are about the only changes I've made from his for 13.5 racing. Sorex tires as well.

This is something from my point of view... Not every will agree with me on this, but this is just what I have found on my car in how it effects handling.

Typically less rebound will give more overall grip, but the car reacts a lot slower. Its good for when it's really hot outside, or on very long sweeping tracks. It doesn't seem to work quite as well in bumpy tracks because the shock won't extend as quick after compression.

More rebound tends to make the car a little more reactive, but maybe a little bit less grip overall. I find it good when it's colder, because the tires seem to heat up more. I use more rebound on technical track layouts, or when the track is bumpy. The quick extension after the bumps keeps the tires on contact with the ground... I think. It's just speculation at this point because it seems the car is more stable in bumpy sections of tracks.

Hope that helps some. You might have to try it for yourself and see what you think. I know my opinion on how rebound works is different than some others. It's worked for me though

-Korey
