ProKit launching

This is a discussion on ProKit launching within the Suspension and Handling forums, part of the General Help category; I know, not the best springs for a launch. But those are staying. I love the stance and the ride ...

    ProKit launching

    I know, not the best springs for a launch.
    But those are staying. I love the stance and the ride isn't too bad.
    Mostly a street car, so....

    Right now I am riding on the ProKit and stock struts/shocks. Able to cut upper 1.6xx short times.


    I am wondering if and how the revalved Bilsteins will effect my launch.
    TIA

    depending on the valving you might loose some 60' time from not getting proper weight transfer.

    Not what I wanted to hear.
    But I was afraid of that.

    Any other options?? Koni DA's would be GREAT but I cannot afford them.
    Well...might be able to get the rears and get something decent for the front.

    I do plan on running a softer rear spring for 1/4 mile runs.

    Besides going to actual drag valved shocks thats the extent of what I know for strip tuning? do you adjust tire pressure? might help with new valved shocks.

    I don't have the revalves on there. Considering them.
    Right now running the stock struts/shocks.

    Tire pressure is lowered.
    I was able to cut 1.67x short times...don't want to loose that.
