Has anyone tried the stock mount bilstien shocks they sell in the day motorsports magizine. They are the 40/40 lf, 30/50 rf, and both 30/30s for the rear. Supposly good for a dry slick Track. Anyway I got them and seems to good early on and then fades away and I fall back, not saying its the shocks but Id still like to know others say on it, Its for a hobbystock that weighs about 2800 lbs.

I am running about the same setup but my streetstock is about 3200# and the track is also a dry/slick 1/2 mile.I switched to them last year and they are just awsome compared to any other stock mount shock I have run and we have prettymuch tried them all.It almost sounds like you have a small problem somewhere other than shocks.When your car starts to go away what is it doing pushing or getting loose?You most likely are overworking one end of the car causing the tires to heat up and lose grip.It might be as pimple as a spring change or even just an air pressure adjustment.
