Weight is being transferred on and off power. Since this is a rwd car, when you let off the throttle, you don't want the weight to go front wheels.. if it does, the rear will lose traction.. that's why you need no droop in front and lots of droop in the rear (corrected)

Are you sure? I thought front droop transferred weight to the back on power, rear droop transfers weight to the front off power. So I would want no rear droop and lots of front droop?

You're telling me the opposite?

You are right, there should be maximum front droop (weight can transfer back upon acceleration, for on power understeer. You can tune this out if you're a fast wheeler).
And there should be minimal rear droop so that weight doesn't transfer forward when you're braking.

Sorry about that.. I had my add / remove droop backwards.

Basically when you pick up the front, the suspension should not go down bellow your ride hide setting .. eg lots of droop

When you pick up the rear, your suspension should go down plenty .. no droop

Now you've got it backwards. Lots of droop = suspension drops a bunch when the chassis is lifted.

Clearly I have difficulties describing droop lol. That's what I thought.. when the suspension drops a lot it is drooping.

But then you hear that the track increase your droop by half a turn in the front, decrease your droop etc. If you turn the droop screw half a turn clock wise, you reduce the suspensions down play motion lol.
