midnitea is correct! We appoligize for the delayed response. The fastest/best way to get a hold of us is by calling or e-mailing into the shop. Due to it being race season the tech guy on here is usually tied up working on our shop cars or is out of the office at the shows/races.Probably happened to just be on at that time checking things out. Most of his post are a day or two apart.
No worries here.
Thank you! I appreciate the response. Really didn't mean anything by the "crickets" comment, just being a smart ass. I apologize.midnitea is correct! We appoligize for the delayed response.

WE struggled to get the car to move off the line this weekend. Track was not good but a PBR tired car running tick slower then we used to made it to finals in pro and won super pro. . I could get it to no spin its nuts off.
Here is a couple of videos. Do I not havve enough extension going on in the rear? Need stronger front struts to keep them from extending so fast?
Do I need to get after it some more? Raise 2 step and then see if I get more extension on rear or loosen extension on rear shocks. Car is suposed to be around 140%as about 38 inches long according to baselines calculator.
In second video spins after front end comes up. 1st video we turned down 2 step and it went straight to tire spin.

12+ on compression, 5-8 on rebound. This rebound should be on the softer side so if the rear tire hook initially but then break loose as the front tires come off the track, add more rebound.Viking where would you recommend starting on the fronts with new Viking Crusader struts with 175lbs springs on this setup?
Pro bracket radial tire. Rear is as loose as I can get it on extension. I think as was around 140 and IC was around 34" Not sure ill have to look back on my notes in the trailer. Seemed like if I left any lower then that on the 2 step I didnt get any separation. Maybe raise front of lower up one hole and rear of lower one hole. Make as little higher? Front end was pretty tight on extension. I could loosen it up a bunch if need beI think it needs a little looser in front and more separation in rear, but Im no expert. What tire? Im sure its here, but I didn't look back. Mine separates more than that just when I stall to 2800. your front end looks tied down (almost). Looks like it could be loosened a tad in the front to try and help it get on the back tire. But, more separation in rear might get it on the tire with the settings you are running.
Rears are full loose on extension now. NOt sure the valving in the shocks. I don't think they are crusadors. They are the cheaper ones. Cant remember for sure. Had them for a while. Wasn't planning on it being a no prep but the damn track must of figured that.For no prep surfaces like that you do need to back off on the rebound on the front struts to promote more weight transfer. The rear looks pretty flat. What valving do you have in the rear? If they are the Crusader AM valved shocks we do offer a softer rear drag rebound valving in the AJ valving. The valving needle and seat kit is $15 and you can change it yourself without having to send the shocks in.
It would be best to first try some of the things mentioned above with backing off front rebound, IC adjustment, etc. to see more separation at full soft on the rear shocks.
THis is spinning every time after the hit. Plants good then like tire bounces back up. Ran out of time the other night. I only have to more clicks tighter on compression on rear shocks to use.I have a buddy with me most of the time watching. We try to watch if it spins at the hit, or right after the hit to see what to do On rear shocks.
I have 2 more clicks I can go tighter on rear. Going to loosen front a tad and tighten rear next time out and try it again. Then maybe lower 2 step a little see if maybe its not as violent in rearNot sure if that's because your front is stopping so suddenly. But usually on mine I tighten compression if it spins after the hit(I think that's correct)
All springs, and tires are newThe car looks way too stiff. Loosen the front on extension an tight on compression. rear should be full loose on a slick track. Lower your leave RPM as well. 4300 is pretty high. Your front springs might be shot as well the car is not working at all. How old are the tires?
