GPR settings on drag bike

Just curious what setting everyone is running on their GPR or similar type steering dampener at the strip.

I noticed my setting was pretty low (2) and was curious if I could benefit from turning it up a few adjustments?

I guess I should turn it up a bit then?

What kind of problems would I experience if I put it at like "6" or max dampening?

Pretty much just riding straight, so that would help, correct?

Suppose if I can ride it low/mid 9's at 2, it should be a bit easier at 6!

I don't have a GPR but a Scotts and before I pull up to the line I turn all the way tight....right after I finish I pop my head up from the double bubble and turn it out soft to make the slow turn out. I have been doing it this way for years and never had a high speed wobble or mishap.
