Perhaps you should rephrase your question. Cuz any shock/spring combo will have rebound. It's a matter of degree.

Are you asking about building shocks with different rebounds?

I searched this subject and only found threads describing how to achive different rebounds 25%, etc.

I think the original poster wants to know what track conditions call for rebound and how much. I would also like to know as i havent been able to find much info on that.

Think most say-The smoother the track the less rebound you should run. And the more Bumpy the more rebound, as the higher rebound.. tends to make the car keep Up on the bumps. And not ride all the way through them. Think less rebound, generates a tad more grip too.

yes i know how to set it ithought rebound on a bumpy track might make it bounce about because the shocks react a little quicker

You can search as hard as you like. But there is no right or wrong... getting the balance takes time knowledge.. and most of all. Personal testing -Trial and error. Most people recommend the bumpier the track the more rebound. If you disagree then fair enough. Search around on google, as rebound is as much of a black at as engine tuning in.. there are way to many variables..

It does come down to time and knowledge and lots of testing. when it comes down to it what are we trying to do... Keep the wheels on the ground, this gives us traction!!!

on a smooth track you can run slower rebound
on a rougher/jumpy track you will run faster rebound

BUT........

you cant just change the rebound b/c if its bumpy and you just added faster rebound it would jump all over the place. this is where testing come in.

faster rebound requires stiffer compression
slower rebound you can run less compression.

Its finding the balance that make it work and how to do it and get the other to do what you want at the same time.

I know that, I was just explaining it in more simple terms. I tend, not to worry too much about rebound. But a general rule of thumb is the above. But yes, just because its bumpy does not mean run full ect.
