QA1 Introduces New Stock Mount Twin Tube Shocks for Racing

QA1 53 Series

QA1 has announced the addition of its new 53 Series stock mount twin tube shock absorber to its circle track line of products.

QA1’s new 53 series features a stronger, larger diameter body than the popular preceding FC Series. This larger body provides for easier gas bag installation and larger oil capacity for increased shock cooling. The 53 Series is manufactured in QA1’s Lakeville, Minnesota facility, which they say allows them to provide custom valvings to suit specific performance needs. The 53 Series is designed to be a great choice for Southern Sport Mods, Stock Cars, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks and Limited Modifieds.

With its twin tube design and strong external body, the 53 Series can withstand abuse without affecting performance. Because it’s completely racer rebuildable and revalveable, there’s no need to throw this shock away. With just a few minutes and a few tools, the average racer can fix or tune a 53 Series shock, saving time and money. For those who would prefer, QA1 has authorized rebuilders located throughout the country who specialize in revalving and repairing all QA1 shocks.

With QA1’s deflective disc technology, racers can easily change their valve settings to suit specific driving and handling needs. Deflective disc valving is a series of individual discs stacked together creating valving resistance that can easily be adjusted and ensures optimal valving on both compression and rebound strokes. Settings are easily adjusted by changing the number and thickness of the discs to fit specific performance and ride characteristics.

QA1 says all their 53 Series shocks are 100 percent dyno tested and serialized so that racers can trust that each and every 53 Series shock is manufactured for the utmost reliability and consistent on-track performance. QA1 has a new video explaining exactly what you can do with twin-tube shocks, which we’ll embed below.
