I was wondering what you all thought of the 90/10 shock on the rear end. I have seen and herd of people taking them off and not useing any shock at all. Do any of you do this? What does it do to the car? Thanks for your input.

It helps to tighten the car on entry.It helps the most on dryslick tracks.I like to use one.Use it as a tuning tool.

I don't have one on mine because it was tight on entry.

It frees the car up getting in if you take it off. I run on dry slick, and like 2nd2none, it's prolly been a couple years since I've had one on the car. 4/Z rear.

Thanks I was told if I took it off the rear would twist to much. I guess it sounds like somthing you just have to get used to. I think that the shock on my car is hyperextending and bending the mount on chassis side so I was wondering what would happen if I just took it off all together.

If your are running out of travel on the 90/10 under acceleration you need to take it out and the car will hook up a ton better. We found this problem the hard way on a GRT that had a 7" 90/10 and needed a 9". It broke the mount one week and we won our first main in that car. Afterward we found the 90/10 hanging from the rear mount and finally figured it out. I now use my 90/10 alot to tune entry by moving the front end up and down.
