I've been running them on my cobra for a while now. No complaints.

I have them on my '05 (with cobra jet springs), and they're working great at the drag strip. It's nice to drive to the strip, set them for racing, and then set them back for the drive home.

I'm still sorting things out (front/rear settings, tire pressure, launch rpm's) but I've managed a best of 1.65 60' on my car (302 rwph @ 3660 lbs).

They work...

Did the Strange Adjustable struts make a big difference?

I don't think there's any one magic part, but putting the right pieces together allows you the adjustability to get your specific car set up to run its best.

My very first trip to the 1/4 mile this year (with all the parts installed), I forgot to adjust the struts/shocks before my first run after driving 85 miles to the track.

With the struts and shocks set at +6 at all four corners I ran a 12.814 @ 106.36, with a 1.75 60' (time slip) and pulled the left front wheel just barely (pic). With the struts/shocks at this setting, it's very close to factory ride. So in theory, I might have run the same time with all the other mods listed and the factory struts/shocks in place...
