SpeedMart has done your shock homework for you! The EDGE Midget Packages are more than just a box of shocks. Each of the Smooth Small Body Shock packages is designed to provide specific rebound and compression dampening at both low and high speed shaft velocities to maximize handling for that for specific track conditions. Each package also includes a comprehensive tuning guide that shows you exactly which shocks go together to make all four corners of your car perfect for any track conditionwhether it’s dry, slick, heavy or rough. Visit SpeedMart Shock Tech right here for a total understanding of shock adjustment and theories.

There are two major categories of shock absorbers, which are based on the way they react to force. Linear shocks were the standard before recent advancements in shock technology. Linear shaft velocity increases, damping forces increase at a linear rate. On a shock dyno graph (Diagram B) both compression and rebound damping appear as approximately straight lines diverging from each other as shaft velocity (or force exerted on the shock) increases. This style of shock has been a boon for racers because it allows increased control at lower shaft speeds, which is vital for controlling a race car through the corners.The third type of shock is a fairly recent development. Digressive shocks are essentially the opposite of progressives. As shaft speed increases, damping forces increase at a decreasing rate. The Diagram at the top is a shock dyno graph of a typical digressive shock dyno curve. Digressive shocks provide low-speed damping control without being unreasonably harsh on rough racetracks. Both modern linear and digressive shocks allow separate damping and rebound rates. So far manufacturers have not been able to combine, say, digressive rebound with linear compression in one shock yet.
