Ya anyone that is running a Pierce car and not running those shocks needs to get them. Thats the biggest change to a Pierce car. I could not believe the difference. The best 600 I've ever spent!! gl ltr

Not from Bob!!!!
I always hear people say Im going to get them dynoed and then get them chaeper.
But once you dyno them. and then dyno 5 shocks to get the same as one of Bobs you are not going to get them any cheaper.
Bob sells them for 145.00 and they are dynoed and ready to go.
What I am saying if there not from Bob I wouldnt trust them
Unless you are buying them used and then you have to think why are they selling them for 200 when they bought them for 600.

Just my thoughts

Heres what I don't understand, aren't they just rebuildable AFCO shocks? Or are they special valving that he came up with? We have a set on one of our cars that we bought with the car but never asked Bob about them. It may seem dumb but I want to know. Thanks.

No, They have a special valving that Bob came up with, They are afco rebuildables but his own valving,
Afco builds them just for Bob thats why there is no part# or anything on the shock just a BP-1 and so on

Hey Donslink1, If i claim your shocks you will claim our motor, **** !!!!! I 'll save you the $525 bucks and trade you even up!!!!!
(I got $500 in the heads and maybe another $750 in the short block.)
Just kidding!!!!!!!!
I'd never claim or mess with you guys donslink1, we got WAY to much history!!!about 20 years i'd say, and i respect you guys to much.
But i would'nt mind having the 10s motor and shocks.

That 10s guy has a motor????? I think the track should buy it and put it in the water truck that way it goes faster and does not put down as much water.

I know you and Eddie are friends.
and if anyone claims our shock now, They are probly getting ripped off after running them on that track we had Sat.

Were not doing too bad we are tied for second with andykmod right now.
a couple heat wins, 3 top 5s and a 7th
we raced only 4 times this year do to rain.
other than that hoping to pull off a win hear soon. Seems like everyone with a Pierce is winning but use! LOL
the other thing is the track we run at there is this one car, he has won every race so far. I DONT GET IT!!!!

Hey Donslink1, this guy that has won every race at your track is he in a Pierce car?? If not, what is he running.... Is your track rough, or smooth?? Wet or dry??

The early generation of Pierce cars were a 2 link with a ride side panhard bar. I think it was 17 inches? They worked pretty well. I ran one for a couple of years. With the bigger horsepower numbers everyone seems to run, the 4 bar z-link is the way to go, but for a b-mod, a 2 link would work.

Ya you use a 17" swedge tube but overall length is like 20 1/2" I like the right side panhard bar, But anyways the guy that is winning at our track is running a
Pro-Chassis and our track goes from one extreme to the next Im talking dry one night and tacky as h#ll the next some times smooth some times cars disapeer in the ruts!
VERY INCONSISTANT
and looking at the traction control topic you know who I am talking about fastboy!!!
