Looking for anyone with experience using these new shocks.

I heard they have a much broader range of adjustability as compared to previous electric Konis I have used in the past.

Thanks for your help.

63' corvette for top street.

How much coarser are the compression adjustment positions "clicks" as compared to the regular Koni shocks.

Is the Rebound adjustment also coarser, or is it similar to the normal Konis?

Got them from Bickels with little insight on where to start.

Thanks,
Dale

Bill, Any thought on where these shocks should be set.

They seem real tight, but this also seems to be the trend with pro mod type cars.

Some recent pro mods I watched look like the rear end does not go up into the chassis on the launch, unlike a pro stock that nearly has the rocker pannels on the ground on the launch.

Whats your experience tell you?

Thanks,
Dale Pittman

Bill, Let me know when you are testing next.

I would like to join you at a test session if it is at Norwalk, after their national event next week.

Thanks,
Dale

Bill, Any luck with adjusting these new shocks?

I will be racing at Stanton this next weekend. I was hoping you might have some advice on a baseline setting, so I can make a few moves on them in qualifing to try to find where they like to be set to achieve the lowest 60' times.

Thanks,
Dale Pittman
