    Default Damper Placement Options

    Gents:

    I have a pair of Ohlins TTX-44 four-way piggyback dampers. My only option to mount them on my RF95 is aft. Currently, I am running Penske 8100s on all corners. Will I gain any performance by a 4-way aft, 2-way front damper combination?

    A four-way damper could be better than your 2-way, providing it's tuned to work in harmony with your chassis stiffness, wheel rates, tire characteristics, and driving style.

    Run the car extensively on the 2-ways until you are both: completely consistent, and can't go any faster; then try the 4-ways. Of course there's the risk that the 4-ways makes the rear better, and now the overall handling is upset at the expense of lap time...

    (thats the long way to say "maybe")

    How do you envision gaining better performance, though better grip or a change in balance? Is your balance incorrect at this time?
