Best Drag racing Struts For Daily Driver

Lakewood, qa1, strange, other suggestions. I hear strange struts are noisy but want to hear your opinion on good struts for drag racing and traction that aren't noisy.

I was wondering this myself. My koni's don't cut it at the track. I was looking into some Lakewood 50/50's.

Well I'm sure my tires are more to blame, but they're not valved to bite like a "drag shock" would. I bought the koni str.t's all around and they make the car handle pretty good around twisties. I tried my hand with them at the track and was only able to rip off a 13 flat. Better tires and drag shocks I would've been sitting pretty.

Oh ok. Makes sense. 50/50 probably isn't worth it at the track....

Oh I know brother lol it's my second mustang and I live in New England. I just didn't know if they were hard to live with. Car rides stiff with the current set up but didn't lose too much ride quality.

Are the strange struts noisy for you. A lot of people recommend strange but the other half say the struts are super noisy

Grabber I'm assuming you were originally referring to strange shocks right?

I'm assuming that you were suggesting that the strange10 way adjustable shocks were good for a daily with some track use. I'll probably buy some next year.

Both Strange adjustable shocks as well as struts. Viking makes a double adjustable rear shock that's a step up from the Strange.

Cool. I'll probably look into upgrading over the winter.

Well if you get adjustable ones you can set them up many different ways. Street friendly and then change the settings when you go to the track.

Just curious I've never had a car setup for drag. My car isn't my dd so I'm willing to sacrifice some comfort for power.
