Dampers

"The softer you make a shock absorber the faster the weight is transferred. The harder you make it the slower the weight is transferred. So if I have a car that is understeering going into the turn I need more weight on the front end. You can change this by either making the front end softer so it squats more or loosen the rear rebound damping, so the rear end lifts up more and thereby transferring more weight to the front end. If I have an oversteering car out of the corner I can make the rear compression damp harder so that less weight is transferred to the rear, and I can change the Rebound dampening in the front so the front end doesn’t come up so much and there by less weight is transferred."

Note: I think this last sentence is wrong. And it seems to be different of the quick reference. I think that if you have an oversteering car out of the corner you need to make the rear compression damp softer so more weight is transferred to the rear, and you can make the rebound dampening softer in the front so the front end come up. If I so the "quick reference" is too.-marck777
