I think my own personal butt dyno is more sensitive to changes in acceleration than to acceleration. I might not notice a steady 1.1G (including gravity in the G) but I sure notice a sudden change from 1G to 1.1G

On the other end, while I notice a steady 2G when flying (the result of a steady turn in a 60 degree bank, for example) it doesn't concern me, but a 2G gust in level flight makes my eyes big.

PS--does anybody want to talk about Coil Over Suppliers?

To be honest, it was because I thought you didn't understand what we were talking about. I'll refrain from discussing it any further.


And even if I didn't understand it, adding an irrelevant concept would hardly clarify anything.

I'm going with QA1s.

I've been looking at the Bilstein "Saturday Night Specials". They are made for the oval track crowd and are rebuildable. That's the feature tat I like. It seems to me being able to change the setup and share results here will allow us to get an understanding for a good setup that is appropriate for us.

I suppose the charm of rebuilding your shocks onweekends will eventually become tiresome, but after the first victum, err experimenter, it should become easier...

As have I...Specifically the aluminum bodied ASN (46mm piston) and ASB (36mm piston), even though they're a little more expensive than the aluminum bodied twin tube (QA1, AFCO, etc.) shocks. I have found the ASN and ASB for similar prices once the coilover kit is factored in. The 36mm should be more than adequate for our use, weigh less, and package a easier. However, the 46mm seem to have more common parts and knowledge availability from the circle track crowd.

The possibility of having others on this site using the same shocks and being able to create/share data points within our specific applications hadn't really even occurred to me. That would certainly be helpful! :cheers:
