Have some faith in Mr. Ruth. It'll get adjusted. Pax has nothing to do with SEB / SAC and neither it is fixed once published.What is funny about the move of the GT350 and the 1LE is that the Pax will be lower for them than DS, where the ecoboost resides, and the Type R rules. Ecoboost faster than gt350 in an autocross? The stock classification committee has an impossible task pleasing everyone. Any change will bring winners and losers.
I'm in agreement that the PAX will surely be updated, but I question why a 2022 PAX is released at all, before an actual 2022 rule book is published. In addition to FS being vastly incorrect, it's also missing SST which I believe will be a new class for 2022.I think the assumption is that the FS pax will change soon, but IDK.
I've had Konis on my '15 non-PP car with stock springs. Bilsteins like Dana said are another non-adjustable alternative, but between having an adjustment and not having it, why would you want to not have it ?I read the last ~30 pages and it seems a few folks run adjustable Koni shocks… would you put them on stock non-PP springs? Are there other non-adjustable alternatives?
Any specific camber plates you would recommend/not recommend?Don’t forget to do the factory approved camber mod before putting them on the car.
I bolded that last part because I have found I can use rebound control to aid with trail braking (front rebound) and putting the power down on corner exit (rear rebound). Just don't stray too far from 2.2 above else settings will be out of whack.Adjusting the Rebound Damping Control
Once you have found what you feel to be the best bump setting on all four wheels, you are now ready to proceed with adjusting the rebound damping. The rebound damping controls the transitional roll (lean) as when entering a turn. It does not limit the total amount of roll; it does limit how fast this total roll angle is achieved. How much the vehicle actually leans is determined by other things such as spring rate, sway bars, roll center heights, etc.
It should be noted that too much rebound damping on either end of the vehicle will cause an initial loss of lateral acceleration (cornering power) at that end which will cause the vehicle to oversteer or understeer excessively when entering a turn. Too much rebound control in relation to spring rate will cause a condition known as "jacking down." This is a condition where, after hitting a bump and compressing the spring, the damper does not allow the spring to return to a neutral position before the next bump is encountered. This repeats with each subsequent bump until the car is actually lowered onto the bump stops. Contact with the bump stops causes a drastic increase in roll stiffness. If this condition occurs on the front, the car will understeer; if it occurs on the rear, the car will oversteer.
1.1. With the rebound set on full soft and the bump control set from your testing, drive the car one or two laps, paying attention to how the car rolls when entering a turn.
2.2. Increase rebound damping three sweeps or 3/4 of a turn on all four dampers and drive the car one or two laps. Repeat this step until the car enters the turns smoothly (no drastic attitude changes) and without leaning excessively. Any increase in the rebound stiffness beyond this point is unnecessary and may in fact be detrimental.
EXCEPTION: It may be desirable to have a car that assumes an oversteering or understeering attitude when entering a turn. This preference, of course, will vary from one driver to another depending on the individual driving style.
Thanks I clearly misunderstood advice about "camber mod" Where did you get the pictures from? Just want to check out the source to learn more.Camber plates aren’t allowed in FS. You can slot the strut as shown.
I guess that's an example of situation which made me hesitant in choosing adjustable shocks. Meaning, there's a chance to make it perform worse than stock aka make them out of whack.Too much rebound control in relation to spring rate will cause a condition known as "jacking down."
It is from factory shop manual - beside the rule book allowances, only shop manual modifications are allowed in a Street classes.Thanks I clearly misunderstood advice about "camber mod" Where did you get the pictures from? Just want to check out the source to learn more.
