Is Scotts damper good for dragracing ZX-10R?

Hi all got just my Black ZX-10R broken in and am asking to be specific:

Question:

Will scotts steering damper help with 1/4 mile drag racing shakes? or keep ZX-10R under better control and help produce lower times I wonder?

I figure taking curves is one thing but 1/4 mile is another. So am I wasting money getting Scotts damper if there is better aftermarket products specifically designed for dragracer needs? is Scott damper mostly to help circuit type racing?

Want to be more sure if possible before spending $400.00 plus. I realize common sense says it will help. Anyone have improved dragracing experiences with Scotts damper?

Thanks in advance.

Have fun; be safe

I called around and I answered my own question thru a diligent search. Yes ;Scotts does about same as other designed (Ohlins for example) damper and will help with 1/4 mile type runs. (I bet you knew that).

Also SpencerCycle will have swing arm extensions which adjust 2-7 inches for $270.00 in about a week or so.

Have fun ;be safe!
