I would go with steel bushings all the way around. You wouldnt believe the difference it makes in weight transfer...

i'd stay away from the mideivil bushings. they are soft but wear out after 15 nights and are way overpriced. if your allowed, for less money you can have steel mono ball bushings from dca. they cost less and you wont ever wear them out.

when they were legal for us i ran them on all 8. our great sanctioning body wont allow them. they think having us buy $30 soft bushings that wear out in 15 nights is better than running $25 monoballs that last forever.

We can get about 20 or so nights out of them. I'm guessing he redesigned them since then.

Too bad he hasnt mentioned that to customers who bought 16 of them when they first came out...

I believe my almost 300 investment was enough to not bother trying them again on my dime.

The Medieval "Twist" bushings have been redesigned for increased durability and performance since they were first released.

Mike Nichols-2010 IMCA National Champion in a Medieval Chassis ran his "Twist" bushings for 41 nights before replacing them.

Thanks to everyone for your interest!

whats with the $225 ea bilstein shocks ? thats about $100 more than everywhere else... not really rocket science to order a 4/6 rf and a 5/3 lr lol

bushracing67, Thank you for checking out our website!

Our "Clamp Down" RF and "Bite" LR shocks are custom built shocks that have highly specialized components, valving and gas pressures to them. They are not just simple "4/6 rf and a 5/3 lr" bilstein shocks. (If they were and we charged that much it would be a rip off. lol)
This is technology that we have been developing and implementing into our stock car chassis for the last couple years. If anyone has any questions please give us a call we would be glad to help. Thanks

Busch I put together a custom built 7 shock package for my friends and it doesnt contain the rates you listed in it at ALL... keep guessing!
