[DMCForum] Re: Torsion bar adjustment



Yeah for launchers you might want more spring, but with new struts,
you remember how fast your doors shoot up, once they get going. Those
struts should work ok in January then. :-)

I recall us playing around with the hang test, but not using it as a
guide for proper door launching. We just adjusted it till it worked
properly with your strikers and your struts at the time.

Least that is how my foggy memory remembers it.

But, your one of the few that has launchers around here, till I get
mine. :-)
