    rear drag shocks, what setting?

    i just got the moroso competion engineering rear drag shocks, they are 3 way adjustable.

    30/70, 40/60 and 50/50. These ratios a represent the percentage of force required to compress and extend the shock unit. the first number is compression and the second extension. These shocks also adjust by compressing them fully and rotating to the desired setting on the body.

    so what setting should i use? it is mainly street driven, some track time. im installing these tomorrow so any input will help.

    50/50 will work best in opinion for traction and a good ride.

    the car twists to the right when launching, and the car tends to go left. i compensate by making the right side stiffer, in an atempt to have the car leave straight and drive straight.
