    First two passes last night off the trailer knocked the tires. Went to adjusting shock settings and has netted my two fastest 60ft yet. Back to back same 60. cc6ddf0794108dc0c35f9b2b67ccaf09.jpg


    Finally getting our heads around tuning a radial suspension and cutting 60ft where we thought the car could be. Car weight still at 3850lbs with me in it.

    BMR Suspension and Viking Shocks putting in the work.

    That’s nuts. What’s the tire setup?

    Thats a lot of weight to go that fast in the 60'.

    You above or below 5.0 in the 1/8?

    That pass might have been a tad above . Lifted (down to 80% throttle) for half a second in the log about the 60ft mark.

    It maybe 40 lbs lighter now. That was across the scales at TX2K but haven’t done a whole lot of weight reduction since. Going on a major diet come winter.

    Would you mind sharing what you settled on as your shock settings with the Vikings? Or just give us a range to try out? I have bmr and Viking shocks myself and just wondering.

    Yeah I’ll grab my laptop and look at the settings for those passes. I believe the rears were on 6R and about 12 or 14C.

    Front is locked down pretty well so it doesn’t come up too much.

    Thanks for that. What you have on the front? Strange adjustable or something else?
