Default rc8 shock help

guys i'm having a hard time setting the rebound on my big bores on the rc8, if you screw the cap on with the shaft set at a certain position, it will never rebound there

i'm just mad at myself for not being able to do this

They will rebound all the way but at a slower speed.

There definatley is a trick to it. I found that I set the shock shaft/piston to the rebound location I want, make the sure the cap is two full turns open from being fully closed, then tighten making sure the shaft does not move.

The shaft will return a little more than where I set it, so I will adjust for that when I tighten the cap.

Hope it helps.
