hope this helps.
Sorry, I didn't mean to skip over this but I somehow missed it. Thanks for the info. What are you experiencing when going from lighter to heavier oils in the dampening tubes? I know transition will be quicker/slower but what effect does that have on the cars handling characteristics?

Thanks
