I agree with you there

Also, they never show the bottom of the plate. the more I think about it, the more I think it can be more friendly than I originally thought. If the bottom of the slots have tapered edges, and notches for a countersunk screw, you could feasibly adjust them by just loosening the lock nuts, moving it, then re-tightening them, with the notches in the bottom guiding the countersunk screw into the proper location. This would also keep the tightened down screw from sliding fore/aft in a collision. If the three holes in the front are tapped, then you could just mount the top shock to the 'Y"piece, then screw through the exposed "Y" piece hole, into the desired top cover hole (depending on what length you are looking for. You would be able to move the entire top damper set up with just loosening two nuts, and removing one screw. They just need it in 2mm adjustments so we can still use out RR 96mm plates

If the top cover is designed like this, two thumbs up, if not, I guess I've given you a good look at where the evolution of the part could head

I just looked back, and the 102 pics make it looked like those front holes are threaded. Might look a little stripped, but possibly threaded.

the bashing gets us no where. no one wins in those kind of fights.

i hope it's threaded to, if not, the next batch should be i have a reflex cover myself that i'm more than happy with but added adjustability is a plus provided it doesn't come at the expense of steadfastness and precision. i'll let someone be the early adopter on this one and see how it performs.

why not just slot the damper plate and have it slide on the post? it would be a lot more user friendly. i have always drilled my top plates the mount the shock to instead of using the y piece, i run a screw up from the bottom then a nut and shim as needed to get the shock at the right height

There is no need to take off the top cover for the change of the length.
