We just bought a set for the rear, and ran them in the last race of the year, last weekend. I was impressed with them, and they felt way better than a Pro or Afco "WB" shock which is all we ever run before.

I'm not saying there better than a Bilstien (steel), i wouldnt know but i do say there better than a typical WB shock.

Plus you can revalve them your self, which to me saves us alot of money from having to have 40 shocks lieing around and less junk we have to haul to the track. Seems to me there the best next step until you begin to run some of the higher dollar Penske or Bilstien nitrgen gas pressure, mono tube shocks. Like the Bilstien SN series, or the Penskes 7100 series.

The Bilstien steel shocks are nice, but there exspensive and not rebuildable by the racer. If i was going to run Bilstiens i wouldnt waste money onthe steel ones at 110 a piece, but put some more money in it and get the SN series, which are completley rebuildable by the racer, but there 180.00 bucks a pop. Although they are really nice, and are mono tube with gas pressure with a floater piston. Basicly state of the art.

Qa1s are kind of good for a buget A little more up front but can revavle instead of buying another shock we run on a rough track and have not yet had problem even bent a few and had gotten them fixed cheaper then a new one
