Default Shock Rebound

Hi guys.

Could someone please explain what this does to you car handling wise in reflection to the rear/front etc and what conditions you would use it in and why.

i tend to always run 0% mainly because i dont understand what it does, but everyone else seems to run it.

Thanks

Nathan

The effect on handling is incredibly small, at most it is in the region of changing your spring rate by about half the gap between the closest springs you can buy. Just build the shocks in a way that you find consistent.

More noticeable in off-road tracks.

Smooth tracks less to no rebound.
Bumpy tracks more rebound.

Comes down to personal handling.

On-road sedans I would run 1/2 rebound in the front and
no rebound in the rear.

Thanks, so more rebound makes that end of the car slightly stiffer? And none softer?

Hello

I have always found that no rebound always works better on a bumpy track over a smooth track.

Or even negative rebound for bumpy tracks works great.
