Thanks for the picture Oleg. I didn't know if/when you'd post a picture. I think "t-shape" is a good name for this design. By the end of the day, both myself and Jerry Perez where running the "t-shape" cut top decks.

The "t-shape" design really helped yesterday on asphalt, especially during the heat of the day. It greatly increased side bite and forward traction. I ran this "t-shape" in my qualifiers and main. After racing was finished, Jerry and I swapped top decks. He had been running a traditionally cut front and rear top deck. I found my car much more touchy under acceleration. Jerry thought his car increased in overall grip, and made his car more predictable to drive.

Jerry's car has a very different setup on it currently. He is planning on building up his second car with my setup from June 1.

That's really interesting, I ran the deck this way on the A700. I went over to a stiff deck with 6xST09. Might be time to go back dig them out and give them another try as the setup has progressed some way since then.

Please try it at the fully fixed mode with two ST09 only.

Are most of the tracks you recommend this for low to medium grip. I will cut mine for the next time out and try it on the high grip track we run on

Hi Oleg, yes, I ran it this way before, I'll try it again. Will be interesting to find how it is with the latest setup. Looking forward to try the spur damper also as I'm trying to learn about modified.

Should be the hot setup anywhere you don't traction roll. Id sat any outdoor asphalt track would be a safe place to try this.

Why using AM19 in stead of AM18-1?

Other question: when I buy DL3 damper, do they come by pair or by 1 piece?

Thanks,
G-rem

This is our kit's front drives with ST13/ST17/ST01.

Car goes smoother with it.

AM19 top surface level is 2.6mm lower than AM18-1 level.
So you have possibility to install the upper inner balls much lower with AM19.
All dampers come by 1 pcs.

Thanks a lot for answering Oleg, I have now much stuffs to add to my cart ;-)

Does AM19 offer significantly the same position for upper inner balls than AM18-1 (speaking about position relative to the length of upper links)?

Regards,
G-rem

If you ignore the vertical thickness change (which might be the most important frankly), the am19 offers two holes. It will provide for an even shorter camber/caster upper link. Im in the longer of the two holes which is equal to the shortest am18-1 hole.

Id recommend getting the am14 or shorter tie rods (i like lunsfords) when installing the am19.

There are two other bonuses for the am19 over 18--
#1 they come in packs of two, instead of being sold individually
#2 so far, they appear significantly stronger / less prone to bending then the am18-1

Your very welcome.
I only have 1 or 2 am19 in stock but a new stocking order from Oleg should be in this week with more.
