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.
