For one, they don't crack upon impact...i've seen one too many plastic shock body breaking at our local track...

Did you crack yours?

The only thing I don't like about the composite shock bodies is the upper thread where the shock cap is attached strips easy if you're not careful. Very fine thread. Aluminum shock bodies will last and last.

Also, there is another thing about Team Serpent drivers preferring the composite bodies to the aluminum ones. Apparently the composite ones provide more consistant performance...

Hi D - I was at a bicycle race - it's that time of year again. Next week I head off into the alps for 12 days hard slog

I was talking to Sow about my settings last night (in the 3hobby chat room - you should try it ) and it seems I've probably been setting my LSN and HSN too lean, as I was trying to compensate for a badly setup engine. I was basically going the wrong way with both the LSN and HSN.
I had thought I had had a rich bottom end, where in fact it was probably the HSN which was rich. I had adjusted the LSN to cure this, which it did, but probably only because it affected the HSN. Then I had to reduce the idle screw to stop the engine from idling too fast, etc, etc.

You said above about adjusting the LSN until the revs start to rise. So basically the idle remains constant, you turn in the screw a bit (1/12th)......listen to the idle - if it is still runing at the same revs turn the screw in a bit more. Repeat this until I do another 1/12th turn clockwise and then the revs rise a little - I stop and richen 1/12th?

Got my spare JP

If Im not wrong, that word is coming from Master Art.
He dont like the way alu. body react to the track temp. Hotter ambient will lower the visco.
Personally. go with aluminium body! will save your shock budget

Great Reason! No matther if it made of titanium.. on a `hard` impact, if other things did not pops out.. things will broke anyway.
