    Default Rear Damper to wheel ratio

    Hi guys.

    Just in the process of setting up some rear ohlins dampers and have a technical question if any one can help.

    What is the ratio of damper to wheel movement, i.e. 1:1 etc.

    Im guessing its close to 1:1 as the damper is not inclined to the wheel movement.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    I donít think anyone will know that information unless you physically measure it.

    Sorted now and Ohlins working a treat.

    They have transformed the handling of the car.

    What was the ratio out of curiosity mate?

    What other settings have you dialled into them?

    Hi Kryzs.

    I forget the exact figure but the rears are more or less up right so not far off 1:1.

    The Ohlins were re valved serviced and set up on a dyno by Garry @ GM suspension (Ohlins agent)
    He requested various information for the use of the car, corner weights with driver and navigator and average fuel load, weights of wheels with tyres etc.

    From this information he could determine the settings and spring rates. They were returned to me pre set but there is scope to adjust if required as they are three way adjustable. Hi speed bump, low speed bump & rebound
    To be honest without going out and doing back to back testing I would be out of my depth but they are working well as they are compared with the Leda coilovers previously used.
    I will have a play with the settings when I get the opportunity though.

    Thanks
    Andy
