I know this is track and driving style based and I will be doing plenty of testing but with going to a mod motor in the L are the guys running longer or shorter links in general?
Mike is at the Halloween Classic today so I'll jump in here to give my thoughts.
Although it really depends on the entire geometry / setup you use, in general I would say the standard length ( as shown in the manual ) upper links is safer to start with for Mod wind motors.
Typically short links create more aggressive / instant camber gain. This can make the car more difficult to drive because mod motors have the ability to shift weight more violently than stock wind motors.
It appears the "sweet spot" / "setup window" for upper links for most motors, is either standard length or one step shorter ( using AM19 ). It just depends on the geometry of the rest of your setup, chassis flex settings, damping, spring, weight bias, etc.... and then hopefully, as you mentioned, it meets your driving style.
