Mine works better than Kogens and about the same as shigspeed but made a little better and with more wheel clearance read the thread at the end of the link.solo-x said:so i gotta ask, why should someone buy your setup vs. the setup kogan or shigspeed came up with? just curious.
ps. a bit OT, but has anybody written up how to tune a car using those infernal AD's? that whole digressive bump curve/linear rebound curve has me a bit lost on two cars i'm trying to help sort with the owners. there is so little low speed rebound that i can't get the chassis to behave how i'd like with rebound, but anytime i add bump the low speed builds too fast and the handling goes to ****. i just wanna tell these guys to bite the bullet and spring for some logical dampers, but they've got too much $$$ involved already. any help would be appreciated.
i'd like to see the dyno charts you get. the ones i have show linear rebound, hardly any adjustment range in low speed rebound, and digressive bump with a HUGE range of adjustment in low speed bump. standard valving, nothing custom yet.choaderboy2 said:For your AD problems, it sounds like you got the rebound turned up too high on the AD's. The rebound adjusters affects the low speed rebound mostly and 1/4 of a turn is very feelable. There is quite a bit of low speed control avalible. Rebound is digressive as well unless you speced something else.
Either that or the shocks are valved wrong for the spring rates you are running and you have vastly too much rebound. Skipping like crazy with a little compression change is a sign of way too much rebound.
Too much rebound is the second major mistake people commonly do, number one is lowering the car too much.
what build spec are you getting?solo-x said:i'd like to see the dyno charts you get. the ones i have show linear rebound, hardly any adjustment range in low speed rebound, and digressive bump with a HUGE range of adjustment in low speed bump. standard valving, nothing custom yet.
I have no idea what they spec for those cars.solo-x said:standard build for a bmw, focus, and i've also got a chart here for some standard build civic dampers. all show pretty much the same thing as far as curves are concerned. these guys are telling the AD guys that the car is going to be a race car... :shrug:
