I wouldnt change shocks, i hear very good things about the Tokico 5-way drags.
I have a set as well, but car isnt up yet so no personal feedback.
Even Al P told me i made a great chioce in shock.



What gears? Does it seem to spin, or bog, or what?
Tried any diff RPM?

Hope someone like Kevin will chime in with some ideas...

Have you looked at the instant center? This dimension is very important in getting the power down efficiently. Here's a link.

put it on the rev limiter and dump the clutch....its awful difficult to launch properly why your looking at your tach....especially with a manual.

10.91 @ 124mph (60'....1.44)
Stock Short Block, Stock T-5, Stock Computer, 93 Octane, A-Trim....driven like it was stolen
