There is a reason why top level teams that can use anything they want don't.

Think it's a guy that broke away from QA1, off on his own now.

If that's the case, then I'd pass on anything similar to QA1.

I guess it depends on the HP level as well as ET level of the car.

Just because a shock has one or two knobs doesn't mean it had quality or useful valving.

Can you guys elaborate on why they arent good or why they arent as good as the competition?

Im in the market for some decent DA shocks or coil overs and My car is just a street car with plans of maybe a few track days.

Im running a 295/65/15 mt drag radial and ive been told that a Double Adjustable shock is a must for a drag radial car.

Im not building a 7 sec 1/4 mile car, would these be a good choice? I like the fact that they are local to me in Minnesota

I just put a pair on the back of my S10 a couple weeks ago. Only been out twice but they are a shit ton better than the Competition Engineering 3 ways I had. Super nice people to work with. I just picked up a fox body project and i'll more than likely go with ViKing again.
