    Have a long travel on my pilot, the suspension sucks up the front side of the whoop but does not seem to follow the back side, I have 12 inch fox coil overs, 100# top, 125# on the bottom, the rezzies have the fox DSC adjusters, I valve the piston at 30 comp 50 rebound, adjusters one click in from fully open. I'm thinking I need less rebound damping . If you watch in slow motion you can see it getting air over each whoop

    Need shots from outside the car to see what the chassis is doing.

    From personal experience, if you are running the shocks near a 1:1 motion ratio, rebound needs to be pretty close to a 30 to get the shocks to come out fast enough with such a light spring.

    it's a 360 cam, best to use a phone or tablet so you can see it coming and going

    Your reb stack should almost always be lighter than your comp stack.

    Where are your clickers set?

    From the first video, it looks as if maybe the crossover rings could go up a little too

    Dealing with this myself. The curse of having a high COG. What I found did the most good so far was to soften the front compression (less kick up) and sit deeper in sag (more available rear down travel).

    What % of sag are you at ride height? example...12" travel shock @30 sag = 3.6" of available down travel.

    ok so the shocks came with 50/70 (comp/reb) right away I figured that was too much, I changed to 30/50, clickers were just set on the first click, I figure I can dial in higher comp.
    I bought rebound stacks to make it 30 on the rebound and will be trying that for thanksgiving weekend, I'm running 150 psi in the rezzies, if it still needs work I will try increasing to 200, this may increase the comp but it may also help push out the fluid for rebound but it is also going to effect the spring rate, we'll see.
    if it turns out that I need to go even lighter I'll have to maybe play with a flutter stack or drill out the bybass holes a bit but that will then effect the comp also

    with the 12" shocks I sit about 2.5 to 3 inches down but in the vid I see under acceleration it drops another inch, this is with no preload on the springs, If I had the extra $ I'd like to experiment on some lighter springs and put some preload into it. not much spring action to push the shocks out and going over the woops I think the car is in a zero G condition so the weight of the corners is not helping to push them out.
