Rebound is the amount the shock shaft comes out after it is compressed with out the spring on.

fine tuning for handling.
On the D8 the rougher the track the less rebound we run.

i think that the word rebound is mist used in the r/c world
we say that it is the amount of travel that the shaft
moves back out after being comprised but is it not
referring to the speed at witch it moves back

take the spring off of your shock press the shaft into the shock body - let go

the shaft should slowly come back out without help

thats rebound

i know that is how we the r/c world use the word
then what is ajustable rebound ? like thay have on the shocks of a
1:1 car when you trun a knob it will speed up or slow the (rebound)

i think I'm confused over rebound / damping or some thing

Rebound is not externally adjustable on an RC shock. it can only be done with the cap off. The further you push the shaft into the body before you tighten down the cap the more rebound you will have...what I find to be impossible is to have every shock the same..you cant possibly know how far you are pushing the shaft into the body (unless she screams.)

Its really easy to set 0, or 100% everything else is just as close as you can make it

But when would you use it for tuning? Why would you want 0 over 100%?

For my 808, on tracks that arent rough but have BIG air, I like to build the shocks with rebound. This allows me to keep a lighter oil and still avoid so much chassis slap.

The less rebound you set the more the springs work and the less the Pistons work. Smooth tracks with high traction and small jumps require less rebound as you dont need your shock shafts to extend back to full travel as fast..really bumpy tracks with large jumps you would want more rebound to get your car back to set ride height faster. Rebound assists the springs to help your shafts extend faster. Although its one of those very fine tuning things, and personally I dont see much difference between 25-50% rebound, but you will see a difference from 0-100%
