Adjustable Shock Setup Recommendations

Double Adjustable Shocks

To Adjust the Compression or Rebound

To Adjust: Turn knob until arrow points to desired settings. The higher the number on the dial will be more or stiffer valving. The lower the number on the dial will be less or softer valving. Unlike other shocks adjusting the rebound does NOT effect the compression and vise versa.

Caution: Do not force pointer beyond the range, as this may result in internal damage. Recommended gas pressures are related to the track conditions and the compression damping number and assume the shock is fully extended. If the track is slick (smooth) set pressures at 75 PSI on all four corners. If the track is rough or there is too much movement in the car, set pressures at 110 PSI on all four corners. There is little observed difference in performance between 75 and 110 PSI, but driver preference for a given “feel” should be determined by experiment. Right side shocks can be run as low as 50 PSI IF THE TRACK IS SMOOTH, otherwise running less than 60 PSI is not recommended. The “Traction Shock” in front of left rear should be run at 125 to 150 PSI.

Shock Adjustments:

G3S7BRD & GX3S7BRD – Right front with big rebound tacky hooked up and fast tracks. Rebound set at 4 clicks above the 8 or to max rebound. Compression set at 4 1/2 to 5.

G3S7BRD & GX3S7BRD – Right front with big rebound slick tracks Rebound set at the 8 or 1 click above the 8. Compression set at 3 to 4 on compression. The more rebound you run in the BRD the more it will stay on the right front corner. Too much rebound you will lose traction coming off the corner. Not enough rebound the car won’t rotate thru the middle so adjust accordingly. Back off the rebound on real rough race tracks.

G375D & GX37LF1 – Left front tacky hooked up and fast tracks. Rebound set at 5 to 6 rebound. Compression set at 4 1/2 to 5. Adding rebound in some cases will help the car turn in to the corner.

G375D & GX37LF1 – Left front slick tracks. Rebound set at the 3 or 4 on rebound. Compression set at 4 or 5 on compression. Decreasing the rebound on the left front will transfer more weight to the right rear on corner exit and increase side bite and also transfer some weight to the left rear for traction. In some cases adding rebound to the left front will free up the car on corner entry and have more traction off the corner.

G395D & GX39RR1 – Right rear tacky hooked up and fast tracks. Rebound set at the 4 or 5 on rebound. Compression set at 4 or 5 on compression.

G395D & GX39RR1 – Right rear slick tracks. Rebound set at the 4 or 5 on rebound. Compression set at 3 or 4 on compression.

G395D & GX39LR1 – Left rear tacky hooked up and fast tracks. Rebound set at the 5 or 6 on rebound. Compression set at 4 or 5 on compression.

G395D & GX39LR1 – Left rear slick tracks. Rebound set at the 3 or 4 on rebound. Compression set at 5 or 6 on compression.

G375D – GX37TA1 – 5th coil Rebound set at the 5 or 7 on rebound. Compression set at 3 or 4 on compression. Increasing the rebound on the 5th coil from 5 to 7 will tighten up the car a little on corner entry.
