    Good info mate.
    I'm slightly confused about SLOW rebound related info,
    So it says that rebound should be higher than bump this is where IMO it may be wrong,let me explain
    slow rebound releases energy so it only comes into play when you are turning either with braking or acceleration.
    The inner wheel's grip at turn in is determined by rebound especially at lower speeds where aero is not that effective.
    So in short if you want to gain little bit of mechanical grip at front end then use lower rebound.
    On why rebound should be always be lower on than bump on FRONT end because having stiffer bump controls pitch so generally bump will be stiffer than rebound unless the car is extremely understeery then maybe vice versa.

    On rear end though generally rebound is slightly stiffer than bump.

    So in short the rebound should be slightly softer than bump at front
    rebound could be slightly stiffer than bump on rear end (keyword is could be so it is not necessary but generally beneficial for rotation to run stiffer rebound at rear)

    ALSO rebound maybe useful when track does NOT allow stiff ARB due to bumps and kerbs so in this case have slightly stiffer rebound even at front might be used to counter some roll.

    If i'm wrong please let me know.

    Hmmmm...I see what you are saying, but i simply am not knowledgeable enough to say if you are right or not, really. Hopefully there will be someone who reads this post who would like to help us clear this up :D

    I would be glad to add this info and correct the guide if you are right :)

    Yep i would like to know as well,whether i'm right or wrong.
    The info you posted about rebound should be always higher than bump is true for FAST damper setting.
    so in short fast rebound will always be higher value (stiffer) than fast bump on BOTH front and rear.
