    Brian Hanchey and Terry Fair (me) of Vorshlag Motorsports/AST-USA will be manning booth #973 at PRI - come see us December 11-13th! We'll have the founder of AST there, Piet Kreeft, along with one of his sons, technical director Dennis Kreeft. [I]No[/I] shock question can stump these Dutch gurus. We just received a pallet full of some seriously cool new AST shocks to show off at the show, like this monster...

    [I]Quick pics from the shop floor: AST Competition inverted strut for Subaru Pro Rally car. 60mm OD shafts are uber-strong![/I]

    We will also have on hand: AST 2nd gen Corvette shocks (with remotes), the first BMW E90/E82 4200s, S2000 shocks, the first S197 Mustang 4200s, the first Evo X 4200s (for our STU/TTB car), some Porsche goodies, and other show worthy stuff. [H]

    Its hard to see the scale of that massive inverted Rally strut in the picture from my first post - the reservoir is so big, the spring is so big (90mm ID!), that the above picture doesn't do it justice. Picking it up, most people inadvertently slip out a few expletives and a "wow!" or two. Its big, and its sexy. [;)]

    Here's a picture of that 60mm shaft Rally strut next to a normal sized Corvette shock (our second generation C5/C6 coilover shock, with external reservoirs) and a typical rear shock from an EVO, showing the scale of this Cloverfield Sized Strut:

    Me behind the desk. Brian and I never left the booth, [URL="http://www.vorshlag.smugmug.com/gallery/6790815_Cw4Dy#434284958_NdV6a"]even to sleep[/URL].

    Ever wondered what a 250 Euro shirt looks like? Dennis is showing it off here.

    L: Some of the new offerings. R: The clear demo shocks (4200 and 4300) are always a good show-n-tell piece
