No a 90/10 will unload that corner faster going into the corner,not sure if it would make the car loose going in or tight by transferring weight to the RF,if i was going to try it i'd try the LF instead....maybe

Speaking in Bilstein.... The rating are backwards to everything else. A 9010 would be a tie-down shock for the rears.


On a dryslick track, I'll run a 6010 on the LR, with the 4010 on the RR. And I'll use a 3060 on the RF.

I've heard of guys that run a 1090 on the RF on really EXTREMELY dry tracks, but I've never tried it...

I have not. I think I'd try a 6010 on the LR before I tried any kind of "easy up" shock on the RR.

How much rear bite do you have in the LR? (IE: how much heavier is the LR than the RR). That seems to me to be more of factor in tire temps.

I do know somebody that won a lot of hobby races up here, told me to run the "split valve" afco on the left rear.

I'd think 150 lbs would be plenty. And 250 lbs? WOW! I usually ran about 100-110 on my old SCS car, while my new Terminator is setup with 130lbs of bite. Altho, I have to admit I don't pay a lot of attention to tire temps.

What's the handling like? Loose off, I'd guess?

we run a 90/10 carrera in the rf front, it really helps plant the lr off the turns. We are running 52% left, 49% right & 48% cross & on a slick track you can feel the car start to drive right powering out of the turns. Both rears come in at similar temps.

the shock we run has plenty of bump control but very little rebound so when you plant the gas it transfers weight from the right front to the left rear. We do run the springs a little softer than some & rely more on the shocks to help transfer weight where we want.
