    Hello everybody,

    I have praticaly finished my simulator, but i have a question concerning the dampers.

    In fact i saw this type of dumper kit:

    I should go with the first dampers or the second?

    Thanks for your response?

    The second one will not damp anything.
    The pole inside the rubber damper must be movable and the ends of the damper must push against the holding brackets.
    Not easy to explain for me in english, but try to understand the functionality and difference between both.

    That picture should helps a lot:
