But, in dirt late model racing, guys buy 3 sets of shocks a year, because there's magic in each set.They buy ridiculously expensive axles because they have magic "wind up" that has no negative consequences when it "unwinds".
    Iíve got a new set that pushes all 4 tires in the ground harder! My friend who works at NASA revalved them! Said he used technology from the international space station in them!

    Back when Penske was the sticker you needed on the side of the body, I heard you could get as much traction as you were willing to pay for.

    Fyi......he rebuilds any brand of racing transmission and rearend. He said without a doubt, Brinn is the best design and build!
    and they say the reason crate cars was invented was to keep cost down , oh well ......

    It's called gravity.

    Everything that pushes the tires into the ground is an effect of gravity.

    Shocks only attempt to control the speed which gravity effects the tire contact patch.

    I suppose aero would enhance that gravity .....

    Aero and gravity are completely separate forces on the chassis.

    In the automotive world, shocks are intended to slow the displacement at the spring to avoid large oscillations.

    On a dirt late model, the shocks are often stiff way beyond this point. They are used to manipulate natural ride height during acceleration, natural ride height after a fat guy sits on the rear bumper, position of the rr wheel after a tech man jacks up the car and pulls out his harbor freight tape measure, and other odd uses that go on and on. Every one of those odd uses could be achieved more effectively by other means, but it's harder for people to make money if they aren't selling the latest shiny shock.

    I was being a little sarcastic MBR , 95 shaw said " every thing that pushes the tires into the ground is an effect of gravity " I figured with your disposition on aero and the outlandish body's that create it , you would appreciate my statement ....lol...

    I was guaranteed I could run with the supers at Volusia with a 602! Was I lied to?

    I don't think you need an answer to that question.
