Grassy ass.

In a few games I've read that rebound tuning should be 2 - 4 times the value of bump. Ex: (compression/bound) bump of 3.2 = (extension) rebound in range from 6.4 - 12.8. Recall our "bind" discussion on springs and sway bars. Another bind exists between springs and shocks. When spring is relaxing, shock is to be working. When spring is working (compressing) shock is to be relaxing. When those forces fight one another, one's chassis is not happy.

Yea I always tend to run my bump at around 55-75% of my rebound setting and run closer to the 55% the lighter the car.
