What shocks in the front and rear give the car better roll into the corner, do you want light one's in the back or in the front. Right now we have PRO shocks and i believe the LR is a 93 and the RR is a 95. What about the front? Does the back sound right? Also how much staggar do you guys run? Thanks in advance.

I forgot about that. Thanks. We've been told by a lot of people in town that it's right but it just doesnt seem to work as well as other people's do. We are gonna do some testing this weekend.

i am guessing you mean for a dryslick track. as far as that goes split vavles are the way to go. like in afco number i would go lf 76-2 rf 73-5 lr 97-2 rr 93-5 or something along those lines. this will let the car roll over onto the right side very rapidly and hold it there longer. car will settle smoother at the end of the straight. and hook up coming off faster.

We are REALLY looking forward to Fort Dodge opening. We live in Algona and its such a mess up here with the b-mods that we are willing the make the hour drive so we don't have to race here. What you guys turn for RPM's in Webster with 5.43's and 5.67's, all we got are 43's and 83's so...

Black95, I was running 1293 on the lr and 1294 on the rr. Now went to 1293 straight across. afco #'s. Didn't want to spend the money for bilsteins this late in season.
