busa shock

I was reading somewhere that a busa shock works great for drag racing, but I was wondering if it makes a difference on the gen 1 busa shock or gen 2 busa shock. Right now I think I get get away with just the stock shock for now bit as I get more and more power traction and wheelie control are going to become an issue..

Also can you guys school me on setting up the suspension for drag racing...

From what I gather you want it to squat alot and then slowly come back up.. my question is HOW do I achive that. Do I turn the compression all the way soft and the rebound full hard? Or both full soft?

Gen 1 here, gen 2 is an even heavier spring. Basically adjust the preload like you normally would setting your sag about 1/2"-1" and then start messing with the comp and rebound till you get it where you want it. You don't want the spring set to soft and a ton of drop as that will lift the front end. You also don't want it to hard as it may not transfer weight well and just light up the rear tire. Like I said, it may take some time to to fine tune but the busa shock has more adjustment in it than our 10's do.

Question

I gonna try one, but there was another tread that kinda made it seem like this mod was for bigger guys. I'm 145 and maybe 160 ready to ride, so gen 1 or 2 for the light weights. Or does it even matter?

with your weight you should be ok with the stock shock. if you was 180 pounds or heavier i would consider a busa shock.

i would get a busa shock regardless it will help im 165 and about to get one...the stock shock is too soft even with the coil turned all the way down and set on hard. You want about a 1/8 or so of play in your rear suspension...btw you dont want it squating i was told that by a guy on here who goes 1.2-1.3 60's
