I got my shock sensor all hooked up and ready to give it a try tomorrow if it don't rain all day like today... I didn't touch anything as far as shock settings so I can see how close or far off I was =; ....

If you have an anti roll the suspension is locked together anyway.

Ok, here is the shock sensor graph that had the best short time of 1.226 other run just before this on was 1.231. These runs were just 35 minutes apart and the air was the same...

Scott, the extension is only 2 clicks from max and comp is at max!!

When I started ext.was at 1 1/4+ and comp. was at 1  :-k
This is also with 110lb springs

I talked to Chuck on the way home and we agree that a revalving
my be necessary...  :-k

Then it's probably too short and violent.
Your car isn't fast enough to justify a shock revalve unless the shocks are junk.

Shocks are new strange 14" as with the rest of the car..

Moving the upper bars down one hole would take less hit out of it won't it??

That was the only thing that was moved since it was set up other than shock adjustment...

I noticed that barry's suspension recovers after he launches and is slightly higher once the car settles. Mine seems to stay compressed somewhat until I let off at the end of the pass. Not really sure what this means?  Of course you can see mine seems to bounce the entire pass, I don't know if the track is just that rough or if  a stick car never really settles down?  I do get a small peak in the graph at every gear change.

Mine stays down too. Without video I would say his IC is too high and too short.
