second one definately but i would still look for a scrap manta gte, these standard ones will need replacing as soon as you start competing and could well not survive the spring rates you will use.
i suppose what i'm saying is they'll be false economy. you can locate the turrets with a plum bod and continue to use the angled ones until you get the right dampers for the turrets.

i know money is tight but try and find yourself a pair of billies as these will last you a lot longer and save you money..........or as peter says a pair of manta ones will do have a look here on the manta forums there's always somebody who's got something..
