The feel of the Ohlins is much more improved and profound is what I got out of what was said.
You are correct

Here's the full build thread. It was a fun one (but not quite as fun as our 675)

Wow now I can see why the bike costs so much to build, there is a lot of work that goes into those AMA level bikes!

Lot's of research went into that one as well. Had to find a company that could modify the frame "properly", talk to the right people on the stacks and head work, which one of the links to run, which offset to go with on the clamps, which tank to get, and a bunch of other things.

Definitely a fun project

I currently run AK-20's front cartridges I have heard that the AK-gas's can be a bit vague, and I know one guy that switched back to AK-20's from the AK-gas's. For me being a club racer I would probably stick with the AK's, they are a lot easier to setup and don't need to be messed with as much as the Ohlins cartridges from my understanding. Plus I know everyone complains about the 30mm kit being a pain for setup compared to the 25mm kit.

For the rear I switched to a JRi from a Penske. I demoed the a shock the beginning of January and I really was surprised how quickly I could get the thing dialed in, within 3 sessions I had better feel for the rear and it definitely seemed to help with my drive out of the corners. I know that I would be able to get the Penske setup just as well, but Tim from JRi is at a lot of the WERA events in the Southeast so I know I could get direct support from the manufacturer whenever I needed it.

I buy what I know I can get support for, my shop is quite happy with Traxxion and having them built up the road is good for my conscious. If the shop I dealt with setup Ohlins or K-tech or GP then I would use one of those I'm sure.

That makes sense, having support for what you buy is always a big benefit.
