faster rebound for high traction and slower rebound for a looser track.

Thanks

Oh BTW tried the new springs at the weekend seem to take away some direction change but brings the corner speed up when loaded up.

Hi,

new infos are released on the Yokomo Japan site about the Masami BD.
If you look closely on the damperstays you can see that those are slightly changed SDW damperstays (especially visible on the rear).
In Germany a few guys already run the damperstays from the SDW and say that it works awsome.

Cheers
Chris

The SDW shocktowers have the same shock mounting holes pattern as the BD's, only because the bulkhead screws position are a bit different, the shock mounting holes will be like 1.5-2mm higher, so the shocks will need to be 1.5-2mm longer, why this make the car handles better?

Hi,

@pops: Isn't "damperstay" a correct english word? I looked it somewhere up and this was one of two meanings.

@caveman: I don' know but I was told that they give more steering and make the car react faster. The only reason for that could be that the dampers have a bigger way to work and the can keep the car more stable.#
More or less the same difference as between long and short springs.

Cheers
Chris
