that would work great, but not good on rough tracks.

I think the main purpose is to keep the car from dropping to hard when you lift off the gas. Haven't tried it yet, but heard it works well.

We have been running a 7 comp 1 reb on left side for the last few seasons. Realy good on dry slick tracks. You get good side bite. Nice and free through the middle. Took a few weeks to get the set up.

i took it off for this weekend, i just didn't notice a big difference with it, seems to make the car tighter on entry and have to pitch it to get it to turn even on the slick...i'm going to try it again just try some other adjustments..

The shock doesnt work as well on a high momentum track as a flatter slower corner speed track. It'll have a tendency to make the car push more getting into the corner.

Where can you get this shock? I'm guessing this is a customized shock? I can't find it in our shock books. Thanks

You're right, it has to be built. The factories can do it or some dealers have revalving kits for the take apart shocks.
