You should run a slowdown on any setup....period. Otherwise, it'd be like, jacking up your car a few feet and the kicking out the jack...... NOT GOOD! When hopping, you would want to tighten the slowdown up because, the force generated from hopping will force the fluid into the return quicker. You want to counter this effect enough so you have time to hit the switch again without, say, smackin' crossmember.... as that would pretty well kill any momentum you had.... Correct me if I am wrong guys.... I am NOT a hopper.... :)

i wouldnt even try to leave out the slow down for nothing ...

you kinda want that there to take some load off the dump ... and of course your gonna want that sec to compress the spring to begin pumping ....

most often you want the car to fall slightly slower than it lifts ...
