    QA1's are great at the track and are streetable, however other shocks such as the Koni shocks are more streetable.

    The QA1 shocks have 12 adjustments so you can tune how the car handles and reacts, you can then change them for the drive home.

    The agree with the above post about Koni's being the better shock but they are also more expensive. If the car will be exposed to more street use the Koni shock would be best, if it is more drag race the QA1's would work great for less money.

    Hope that helps,
    Ryan

    What do you mean by streetable? Harsh ride?

    Not so much harsh, a little bouncy.
