I run the same amount of drag brake I did with a belt car and changed how much I use the trigger brake. Though i'm sure everyone will give you a different answer. Just depends on your driving style.

in my prior touring cars (when I was fast) I never ran drag brake. i just learned how to push brake effectively into corners. every time I drive a car w/ drag brake I just drive into every corner or are 0.5-1.0s off the pace.

after switching over to the Awesomatix i haven't changed my driving style, but often you need more push brake to slow the car down (and sometimes, the car just carries so much corner speed you don't have to slow down as much).

If you use the AM18 and the furthest holes like Gee's carpet setup do you still need shorter turnbuckles? Before I try and fail and piss myself off I thought I would ask...

Am18 and am19 both need shorter turnbuckles than stock.

That hurts... You don't have them in stock either and I need something by Tuesday! What size's can I use? I see your site lists them as 1 1/4" so would 4x30mm work? I am trying to find a place that I can get these fast so I am looking at all options...

I think Mike is afraid you might show up on his door step if he listed his address.

Well I am trying some blue tamiya 32mm turnbuckles from one of my other cars until I can get the punishers... Hope they work.

Length should be OK, hope your getting the Ti ones and not the Al ones, Al ones from tamiya are very weak

They are AI... That is all I got for now (They came off a different car I have.) I need something before tuesday so I can get some track time with the car. Hopefully the track I am going to will have something better.

Is the overall height of the AM06S the same as the AM06? I don't have the AM06S so I am trying to adjust Gee's setup. Looks like I can just take out the 1mm at the bottom, but wasn't sure if I need to add anything to the top.

You can use our AT14 short turnbuckles.

Cool

It does not have to be your home address... A PO box address is more appropriate to boost sales... Stop being afraid Mike, you don't live in Syria....lol..

No, the AM06s is 1mm shorter overall. If you dont have them, I would reccomend either making the lower arm as low as possible (0 shims with at21s), or run long links to the shortest hole on the bulkhead (like my mod asphalt setup)
