Anyone knows what is the weight of the AT42-1 with the oil in it (just before putting the AT40-1) so the correct amount of oil is in?

Do you need to worry about exactly how much oil goes in? I usually fill to the point where I expect some oil to bleed through the bearing hole to make sure that there's no oil inside the damper itself.

Have a look here:

There is no need to weight the oil.
I highly recommend to follow this instructions for perfect build dampers.

Hey guys, quick question, I'm building my Aweso car for USGT and will be grabbing a set of Ti turnrods, does anyone feel the Lunsford set is better than the T-Worx or vice versa?

I think the extra long top links ( without AM19) in conjunction with LA set can be good at extra low grip and at extra high grip conditions.

What is the science or thought process behind this ?
Iím trying to get more rear traction out of a long arm mmcx-a on lower traction grey carpet, and the long uppers used only on the rear did seem to work. The car is a bit unbalanced in dynamic events now though, I may try the long uppers on the front too. Just trying to wrap my head around how less camber gain is netting more traction ?

Сamber gain is not a determinant factor at this case. Behaviour of the roll center is more important in many cases.
Longer top links provide a notceable increasing of the side roll. This is due to the effective roll center goes down more with longer top link than with shorter top link at car's side roll.

Any idea when more MMCX-A kits will be in stock in the US?

Only place I could find one was Tonisport and I'm not trying to spend $60 in shipping...
