Re: Racing against the grain

Got all shocks valved. Took a lot of trial and error to get it down to where I like it. 40 compression 80 Rebound for the Rear and Im guessing 45-50ish compression front with 75 rebound. Flutter stack all around. Feels like it floats on air now. Valving has an absurd affect on the way your suspension feels and handles.

Wish I could post videos of the test jumping with each different valving. You can clearly tell how it changes the way it lands and handles. Mind blowing.

Re: Racing against the grain

Did a video thing on our Brace. Its been awhile since I've made any How-Tos. I like how it turned out. Give her a watch.

That green jeep in the background looks lonely. It needs some love you know.... Of course Glenn III tried to buy it back from Andy at the wedding..... Nice video by the way.....

Re: Racing against the grain

Saw a clip of this thing on a busted knuckle video. Peeled a tire of the rim. Looked a little bouncy! I bet the revalve will be nice.

Yeah that was quite the ride I tell ya. Shed ready to rock now. Valving is wayyy underrated for what it can do.

Racing against the grain

Here we go. Round two prep near completion. Been working on putting in the new 4 link and creating more up travel, new hood, working on new fuel system this week.

Race in Kentucky this weekend!
