Re: [DMCForum] Re: Re: Torsion bar adjustment



Wow - thanks to everyone for your input.

This is going to be an interesting balancing act, then - trying to
adjust the bars just right so my launchers work but the doors don't
bounce too much at the top.

Doesn't anyone make a "dampening" lift strut that dramatically slows
down the opening at the last 1-2 inches of travel? The doors could
then swing open at whatever speed, but wouldn't hit and bounce at the
top.
