Front End Travel Limiters

So I'm contemplating a set of Travel Limiters.  I have a lot of travel and was wondering if I cut the travel
down, would it help the cars reaction time, and help plant the tires, (no issues hooking).  I do run Top/ and foot
brake the car.  It is much tamer on the F/B with the front tires only coming off the ground 2-3 inches.    I was thinking of a set  of adjustable limiters from innovative racecraft.

I also don't want to upset the hit and blow the tires off, if I'm F/B the car,  or start crashing oil pans and such, on the Brake.   I do not have very much experience with this.

So, any and all comments are welcome.

Meh, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Some cars need a bunch of front end travel, some cars don't need hardly any travel at all, and some cars fall somewhere in the middle.

Best bet IMO is to install the limiters, do some back-to-back testing (don't forget to record the results), and see what happens.

IMO big wheel standers will gain and alot of times footbrake cars don't care so much for it. Good adjustable struts up front , like said is a great tool.
