Racing Shocks Setup Tips for Dirt and Asphalt Here are some racing shock setup tips you can apply at the race track.

Like anything else, all suggestions are just what they are "suggestions." All cars and drivers are not alike, but in general these are commonly applied pratices we have used over the years.

Tuning Racing Shocks for Asphalt Racing:

Condition: Tight In
LF: increase compression
RF: decrease compression
LR: increase rebound
RR: decrease rebound

Condition: Tight Off
LF: decrease rebound
RF: increase rebound
LR: increase compression
RR: increase compression

Condition: Loose In
LF: decrease compression
RF: increase compression
LR: decrease rebound or compression
RR: increase rebound

Condition: Loose Off
LF: increase rebound
RF: decrease rebound
LR: increase rebound or increase compression
RR: decrease compression

A racing shock's compression on asphalt will act very similar to adding or removing spring to a particular corner.

Tuning Racing Shocks on Dirt:

Condition: Tight In
LF: increase compression
*RF: increase or decrease compression
LR: increase rebound or less compression
RR: decrease rebound

Condition: Tight Off
LF: increase rebound
RF: increase rebound
LR: increase compression
RR: increase compression

Condition: Loose In
LF: increase compression
RF: decrease compression
LR: increase compression
RR: decrease compression

Condition: Loose Off
LF: decrease rebound
RF: decrease rebound
LR: increase rebound or increase compression
RR: decrease compression

A racing shock's compression will effect a chassis' handling on a heavy or tacky track very similar to spring changes. Note: this is a guide and not written in stone. Some chassis may react differently.

*Depending on track conditions

GOOD LUCK AT THE RACES!
