The Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA) is pleased to welcome Racing Shocks Australia to the ANDRA Member Benefits Program.

Racing Shocks Australia is the Australian sales and service representative for USA-made JRi Shocks and its factory trained team hold stock and sell new JRi Shocks and parts.

The team can perform all servicing and custom tuning locally, including dyno testing.

Models available include the entry level, dual adjustment non remote Sportsman shock with or pro-version ST08, which are available as two to five way remote systems including air assist for ride height and rebound.

Every system built is tuned for the application and new complete units purchased receive a two-year warranty. Racing Shocks Australia also services other brands and provides dyno graphs.

ANDRA members who purchase a pair of JRi shocks from Racing Shocks Australia are entitled to an annual free dyno check within a two-year period from the date of purchase equal to a saving of $120.00. Further discounts may be available for owners who seek season long technical assistance.

“ANDRA does a great job in representing drag racing and its community, so it was a no brainer for us to get involved in the program so members are aware of the products and services we offer,” Palermo said.

“Retaining the community and family values is important for everyone to enjoy the sport. ANDRA drag racing is one discipline that has not lost sight of this while continuing to raise the level of professionalism without sacrificing the grassroots levels where it all began.

“Having been involved in professional motorsport for almost 30 years in various forms, we are aware obtaining the right information or assistance that competitors seek is often hard to come by.

“We offer products and services that assist racers to save time and money, and get the most enjoyment they can in the years they compete.

“Our products may be at the premium scale of some budgets, but in our opinion the long term performance and longevity they offer outweigh the savings that may be found in purchasing multiple cheaper options that are not properly represented in Australia and are often inferior in quality.

“JRi Shocks have gone on to win many championships in Drag Racing, Speedway and Road Racing in the USA since its inception.

“The technical alliance Racing Shocks Australia has formed with JRi Shocks and Marc Smith at MSR Suspension allows us to provide the very best and latest advice on shock setups to optimise your setup.

“Many custom car builders use JRi Shocks for their muscle car builds and cars fitted with the JRi product have gone on to win the Good Guys Street Machine Competition in the USA that has similarities to our Summernats competition.

“Other special project vehicles include Ken Block’s Mustang in Gymkhana 7 and JRi Shocks are fitted to all of the Australian S5000 race cars as the control damper for the category.”
