Those with Adjustable Shocks, come in to discuss your settings

Recently switched from Stock suspension over to a BMR Rear Drag Pack w/ Strange Double Adjustable Coil-Overs front and rear.

At the track yesterday working on dialing it in, and curious where you are are having some good luck.

Currently have the front set at full loose on the extension and full tight on the compressor. Brings the front end up nice and stays. Maybe a bit too quick however.

Rears we bounced around all over the place and winded up back at the middle of 5 and 5 clicks on both rebound and compression. Track wasn't as great and also on a 17" wheel still so it was a tricky day.

Post up what you are having good luck with!

Hoosier 28x10x17 Slicks around 14psi

I got a KW V3 with double adjustable front and rear shocks.

In the front I've set its rebound to full soft (16 klicks) and compression to full stiff (12 clicks).

In the rear I've set its rebound to full stiff (16 klicks) and compression to full hard (12 clicks) but I think, because the springs are the same it's not good and changed the compression back to the middle (6 clicks).

Any ideas for an improvement??

I got 325/45R18 Hoosier Drag Radial II on the rear and stock wheels on the front ...

Car weight is 3750 lbs including driver ...
