Guinea Pig Review #1 Wiigstyle Racing Rear Shocks.

Tried them this Sunday whilst racing a 3 hour enduro.
I waited for results as this is a confirmation on a product I try.
And well ! Remington Steel is right, Josh really knows his stuff and built a really good product. I would use great but that would be comparing them to PEP PB1's.

I did the scientific evaluation and seemed stiff at first. (Pushing on the grab bar ). Put the compression adjusters at 1 turn in. My mistake.

This is a primary evaluation as my front Elka's turned into po-go sticks 20mins into the race.

The Wiigstyle modded rear stockers performed really well and better than expected for the price. There were predictiable and I managed to make them bottom out a couple of times but inspired confidence and I got a 5th the hard way. The track was 5 miles long and with no rest time except a 400 yd strip in one of the woods sections. Those who race will know what I mean. The rest of you ,this a place where you can relax at race pace .
I am impressed and wish Josh wasn't 3000 miles away , so I could send my front Elka's in.
All in all , I am comparing the "Lazy" stock shocks to the Wiigstyle modified stock rears and I really do like them and for the money I ain't complaining.

I'll sort out the front Elka's and post after my next race on September 4th.
Thanks Remington Steel for suggesting Josh and Thanks Josh, You did a good job.
P.S. Don't lie about your rider weight , I do for most shock builders for some great shocks but this time . I did not lie and gave Josh my true weight and it has been the closest yet.

Baxter,

What kind of service did you have done to them? Is it a dual rate conversion or a revalve and respring? Any pictures to post?

Nice review, did you ever feel that you needed rebound adjustment too? And what was wrong with the Elkas?

Some people might not understand the stress that I went thru making sure everything was spot on for Baxter. Considering he is 3000 miles away and all I was double checking everything and triple checking to make sure everything was race ready.

I do have my own modified shocks that were the first and have since been used and abused. But, Baxter was the first customer and I thank him for that.

If anyone needs there rear shocks set-up I offer a revalve, respring, rebuild for the rears for all weights and riding styles. Please pm me here for any questions or call me at 712-621-5191.

Thank you.

The valving was spot on I didn't miss having a rebound adjuster.
Took the Elka's off tonite and I think I have blown the bladder or piston seals . They are stage 1 fronts and both shocks have air or nitrogen in the main chamber .
First 11/2" shaft movement is with no resistance the it hit the oil and goes to normal.
