PostSubject: Tuning Question   Thu Jan 10, 2013 10:04 am

I was wonder if I could seek some help in figuring where I should be making an adjust. I noticed that when I go down on the brake the front shocks are turning red. I was just wonder if I should be adjusting the bump or the rebound and it I should be making any adjustments to the shocks.

Thanks in advance

As far as the shocks, if you make the front bump stiffer, it may keep you out of the red. Other than that, you could put stiffer springs on the front, and/or raise the front ride height.

The brakes could be due to your brake bias. If the fronts get hot and the rears never do you may have too much front bias. Adjusting bump and springs will affect the evenness of your braking minimally. However they will affect how you get into a corner.

Hey pred .. my brake Bias is set at 35% to the front. For some reason I usually drive with 42 - 40% but for some reason I found the Ascari turned in better after I dropped the Brake bias. I think once I get this fix and maybe adjust the spring or Acc I will be able to take off 2 - 3 seconds from my time

I think he was talking about the shock compression telemetry which will turn red if you car compresses too far in that area. If you run your springs all the way soft and watch that telemetry you will see the bars turn red when you turn or brake and you will get shock damage. By stiffening the springs or raising the ride height you will stop the shocks from compressing too much and not get damage. Im not sure how the brake bias will affect the over compression. I guess less in the front will not make the front bite so hard and the car wont lean to the front so much.

Basic, are you saying your calipers are over heating, or are you talking about the shocks over compressing?

Yeah, major difference between the two different problems. Of course you need different remedies for different problems. If you're having the problem I think you're having, and the front suspension is bottoming out, (and I should have said before) I'm afraid the solution will not be as simple as just changing a single parameter. Predator is right, all the solutions I offered will drastically affect the turn-in. The only way you will be able to get away with just changing one thing is if it does not hurt your car in other areas. Depending on how bad it is, and if you think you can get away with setting only one or a couple of those things stiffer, then you may be in luck. However, most likely you will want to increase all 3 of the settings I mentioned in order to keep it drivable, and then you will have to also increase all or most of those settings on the rear as well to keep it balanced in the turns. If it's not that severe though, you may not have to do all that. Without driving or at least watching the telemetry from your car, I really don't know what the best solution would be.

Also, if it only turns red after you turn in, but while you're still trailing the brakes, a stiffer front anti-roll bar could also help, although I can't really see that being the problem.
