The Team-Z Strip Series kit relocates the upper control arm pivot point and the angle at which it can apply lift to the front of the car. Imagine your rear axle as the center of a wheel and the distance to the front tire defines the diameter of the wheel. Now draw an imaginary line through the upper and lower control arms individually, making a triangle (instant center), this is your prybar to get the wheel rolling, representing launching your car. If the triangle goes far beyond the diameter of the wheel (your front tire), it would take much more time to initiate movement at the front tire since movement starts far out in front of the car. However, the closer you could get the triangle to the perimeter of the circle or the front tire (shorter instant center), the quicker the front end will lift and transfer weight with much less power. Bottom line, the Team Z suspension kit shortens the instant center, improving the launch of the car.
