Weve got a 00 GRT/ 4 link/ long j bar running on a big sweeping half mile, very wide kind of a flat out track, I hear guys getting rid of the 90/10 shock on top what does this help or hurt and what else has to be done to not run it.

we were told by the guys at rocket to take ours off too. i was hesitant but now that i've removed it, i have never put it back on.
taking it off seems to free the car up on entry which makes the car feel alot nicer. i would say, take it off and put it in your hauler and then just put it back on if you need to tighten the car on entry (tuning tool). very few guys seem to be running them anymore.
nearly forgot, make sure you've got a sixth coil setup or similar, not just a rebound chain.

We run a 90/10 when the track gets dry/slick. We keep it mounted in the chassis mount and built a mount on the chassis above the rear for the rear connection. The shock stays on the car and when we need it, pull the clip and pin drop it into place and replace the pin and clip. We can do ours through or trunk area so it takes about as long to do it as it did for you to read about it. This way we can do it while the race is going on or at the last minute before going out on the track. just a small amount of fabrication time on the chassis and the rear mount and your done.

How much does adjusting the 90-10 shock angle affect the car on turn in?

removing the 90/10 will loosen the car on entry and give more forward bite on exit, running 2 90/10s just makes it tighter going in... I've seen a bunch of guys doing this. If you're tight in or out removing the 90/10 could help. Sometimes when you're tight out it started befor the apex and you don't really feel it untill you're hard on the gas again. Try running without it on a practice night.
good luck
