Normally I can find another second in the damper settings. I like to call it finishing speed. Im still a little lost with the transitions as they seem like a fine tuning adjustment of the dampers.
    You really should start tuning at the dampers. Once you have the rough spring settings for the track where you want them, the slow and fast bump/rebounds are to fine tune the springs for how you drive on the track. Example, medium soft springs at CotA, with fast damps set fairly high, will allow for the smooth surface at CoTA, and those mad S's and setting the slow bump/rebound to a soft setting should allow for a newish driver to learn to perfect the line on the track.

    Hi Roger, thanks for the new Garage. Are you going to make Casey's explanation a sticky. Also Jussi's LSD and Suspension Calculator?

    Please.

    Thanks Visceral Syn,

    I drive with one arm and I mostly go to front slow bump first and lower it a couple clicks because I think I feel the wheel response better for steering. What do you think? Wrong way or right way?

    What? THANKS Bealdor!

    Can you make the WR holder at SPA in the Ford GT GTE?

    It's not my fault when you're slower than a snail.

    Spring settings really depend on the track. I find I use stiffer/slower Slow bumps on tracks where I need to brake hard and long, like Parabolica at Monza...
