I've been around drag racing all my life but that is NOT the intention of the car. I just did it for fun and as a performance measurement. I really want to try a smaller housing once I rebuild.

I actually have stock suspension on my car and it sucks- I put a $hit ton of money into the motor and now I have much to spend on making it handle that power...
When talking to Eddie Bello, he told me that you want the rear of our cars to be stiff for drag racing for the purpose of limiting squat. When they squat- they ride the inside of the tire and that is not good for traction. I have never looked into or heard of someone using air shocks on these cars, but there is a first time for everything... Another thing you may want to look into for your car, in order to launch harder, is a 2 step rev limiter.
The "air shocks" was metaphorically speaking -- "Hijackers" was a brand of shocks IIRC that were air shocks and "hijacked" was my thread.

Of course air shocks on a Porsche is blasphemy!

I figured my play-on-words wouldn't work...
