so i took my front R shocks to noleen to get revalved and new springs(dual rate). man what a differance. they had them back to me in a couple days, still waiting on the springs they should be done by the end of the week, super nice guy. 225 for the re-valve and 250 for the springs. any ways the stock shocks are pretty damn good but this really did the trick,smoother everywhere, you can really tell your using all the travel now, lands smooth off jumps and i can charge the whoops just as fast as my 07 with elka triple rates. i will be racing my first race with my R this weekend in a grand prix and will let you know how they work, just got fast flex bars too so should be smooth sailing. p.s. any help on what elastometers to use would be appreciated, went with the yellow for now.
