    Yep. It is the least expensive way to settle down a bouncy hardtail car. Light weight so ET does not suffer, allows for front end travel that keeps the wheels in the beams so you aren't seeing this odd red lights and most importantly, help stabilize the chassis under harder breaking conditions that usually create the bounce.

    Diamond Race Cars has nailed this set up. Hammertime will be here to post up Dan's number.

    Shawn is right with all he has said. There was a bumpy track in ky area that Diamond did a front suspension on and the guy picked up I think it was 15 hundreths. Diamond just did a new car for me, tell Dan I sent ya

    Pretty safe. Bob Payton was running 7.0's and 6.90's on his I believe. Our car was a 7.60 car no issues before we ended up dual suspended.

    Very good with power, actually they get rid of the need to stack weight in the front like on a lot of hardtails.
