  • 600 shock help

    Recently purchased a 600 Sprint car that was not put together and I'm trying to figure out the best corner to install the shocks that came with it,
    #1- 1compression-1rebound
    #2- 1compression-2rebound
    #3- 4compression-4rebound
    #4- 5compression-2rebound

    Thanks for any advice

    I'd go with #1 RF, #2 LF, #3 LR, #4 RR. Understand that these shocks are way off in terms of valving but I think that's where I'd start. Depending on the brand and type of shocks you could send them to Austin at Hyper Racing and he could re-valve them to make them 100% better and it will make a HUGH difference. Shocks on a race car are EXTREMELY important.

        what kind of car? wing, nonwing? lots of variables. Most chassis manufacturers have recommended base setups on their websites

            What are the actual numbers on the shocks and what brand? A couple of these valvings seem like they are backwards.

                Carreras/ARS lists rebound first, followed by compression. A shock that ends in 1/2 is a 1 rebound, 2 compression. The ones you have are fairly close and will be okay to start on and learn with.

                Shock #1 is the LF, #2 is the RF, #3 is the RR and #4 is the LR.
