What are you running for compression valving?

Bottoming in the whoops or rollers or both?

Mainly g outs not sure on valving its been done 3 times getting more compression and rebound each time it works good in whoops for the most part occasionally bottoms out

Start by upping the gas pressure to 300 psi, you might be in the region where the IFP is moving, causing loss of damping.

Keep your gas pressure at 200 psi.(at full droop). Where are the cross over's set at? Try lowering down the cross over 1". You'll get the lower spring to engage sooner. If the car starts to kick, then you have gone to far on the cross over. Raising the gas pressure will only make the car/shocks harsh.

Cosmo is correct, gas pressure could make it harsh and lowering dual rates can make it kick, especially on irs. It'll be interesting to hear what works and what doesn't for your vehicle.
