I know at least one very successful roadster using Strange's timer activated shocks and a few others with Koni setups
The bump /Compression side of the shock is controlled .
Very effective ,especially on a high HP combination when you are running a track that is bumpy and want to go softer on the shock setting.

Tom,
If you were buying a set would you do the Koni/Lamb air or the Strange Electric?
A fellow Comp racer has a set of the air Koni/Lamb at a fair price.
Basic Question is Air over Electric any advantages?

Adger , I would always go with the Koni or Lamb for all out racing and high HP applications.
The Strange shocks work well ,but you know that the range of settings is wider on the Koni .
I'd opt for the electric . Simpler system . the Strange shock uses a separate air compressor plus the air hose plumbing.
Both accomplish the same end result , I just think the Koni setup is a lot more sophisticated .
