you got it about right kev… the droop is used to limit the amount of up travel b4 the wheels lift. on bumpy tracks use more droop, on smooth tracks use less droop. droop also affects the ballance of the car. there is a lot more to it than that but it even gives me a headache sometimes. best to experiment if you want but dont give it too much thought yet, sounds like you have it pretty right for now.
