    VRP or Penske are going to be your best shock... They are both nitrogen filled shocks... VRP are engineered for short track racing, give Vince a call @ 610-929-5115... He is very helpful in selecting shocks, dealing w/ handling issues, etc... He also use to work for Penske...


    ARS are very good to but are oiled filled... The air filled shocks are really helpful in tuning to track conditions by add/subtract air...

    You dont want to mix oil shocks with gas shocks, so if you have oil on the front already..i think the best oil shock to get is defiently ARS. And for Gas (nitrogen) shock, ARS. But it is a big help to get LR adjustable, its worth the money.

    Just a note, all shocks have oil in them. Here are the two types of shocks.
    Mono tube - Oil/Gas filled (nitrogen) Piston between oil and gas
    Twin tube - oil filled with a gas bag inside of shock (gas non adjustable)
    I think the ARS mono tube work real well. Its worth the money to get the adj LR and RR. It gives you alot of options. Penske and VRP run alot of gas pressure, 65 to 100lbs. ARS you can run all the way down to 0 if you have the one with a spring under the piston. ARS 0 to 60 lbs.
    Everybody has there opinion on shocks, you need to find what works best for you.

    the New VRPs now can run as low as 35 and you can update your old shocks but still can't go down to 0 also I think Pro gas shocks can go down to 0

    With ARS gas shocks you can run 0-100psi., not just 0-60 psi.

    I don't really see a benefit of running 0 psi in a shock... Or what it gains you...

    I think most guys are only running about 35 psi in there Penske's...

    All I know is that I originally had AFCO shocks, then switched to PRO shocks, then switched to VRP... The VRP shocks make the AFCO & PRO shocks out to be a "pos"

    I feel the shocks perfect the handling of the car, no matter what brand you buy... The expensive set is defiantly worth the money...
