  I'm looking for some info/feedback/help on the bilstein crate shock package. Looking to help some friends out and I could use some advice. Seems like something the crate division was intended to do? Anyways, does the RUSH series still give a 25# weight break? is there extra pay for the first car with them on at a weekly sanctioned track, ect. ANY advise would be appreciated.

 

 

 

   Thanks,,,

All of the questions you are asking can be answered on the RUSH page. As for technical questions, Jim Highland from Bilstein can answer any questions you have. I believe his contact number can be found on the Bilstien program portion of the RUSH page. Good luck!

I believe 2015 had a 5000 bucks grand prize to the highest rated Bilstein Bandit
As a team using the 135 dollar per shock package could win at the end of the season
Alan Dellinger did well in a latemodel using them and and I know Justin Lamb was close in the running to win that money but lost track if they did or not
Not sure if they are still doing anything like that
Good luck
You have helped more people than Im sure you remember Mr.!

I hear the rich racers and big teams will buy 20+ of them dyno'ing each one and picking which they want, then selling the rest.  And what about those who put them on a machine to wear them out in a specific way making them work differently then those who cannot alter via use their speck shocks?

Scroll to the bottom. Penske 3900.00 and I was told guys are not spending that on shocks. LOL and LOL even more. In case you did not read the description, that price of 18 grand gets you 2 shocks. Sold in pairs.

Put Monroe matics on all 4 corners. You would no longer need that 65k wide bore ford and you'd have to have a guy that knew how to drive a car.

There letting technology take over SLM racing. There is no reason to be spending that kind of money on something that can be easily regulated.

 Fake News! They run higher end shocks, no point fund $ any longer anyway AFAIK, youll wear out your dyno before you wear out a shock running it, cmon man.

figured I'd throw out that link for the SHOCK! value.. :P

it just shows the need for reasonable shock and suspension rules,
hopefully these rules are made to save the racer money..we all saw how IMCA went wild with mandated labeled suspension parts where they got a cut off the sale..
when you get too many fingers in the cookie jar it doesn't help anyone.

and don't even get me started on bodies.. :)


bringing down the cost to compete should not be Fake news!

MY Point is Who would buy 20 x 4 (or x6 on a late/crate) and dyno all them (...and wear? them IF that was what they need or possible)....Then sell or toss upwards of 80 to 120 shocks!!

TO SAVE 25-50#? pounds total weight,
Aint nobody spending time or money like that.

They are a viable and competitive, budget conscious option.


So the quoted post is regurgitated Nonsense.

Where did you HEAR this Dip Sh!t 2??

.....With that Im done with this sthink tank.

So there is a weight break? I looked but could not find that
Fake news ?
When it’s 2019 and the Russians Hillary the Obama administration and the” news “ all work together since May 2016 to change an election and the whole world knows what 60 million people here refuse to know
It’s really watering down the immensity of what those words really mean !
But for dynotime there is not any extra money for Bilstein shocks but there still is a weight break of how much ? 25 lbs?
