There are no plans for any different piston for this version at least not yet

I am also working on a progressive T-Shox V2 and that one will have a different piston

I guess on these shocks, one must ensure they run truly perpendicular, given the upper mount is not a ball type? To avoid binding?

Andreas, any insight on this, or are there some degrees of tolerance engineered in on the upper mount design?

What about the variable insert ala' RB Concepts design, that everyone is now emulating since they went out of buisness?

Yes it's important that the shock cap/shock is mounted 90 degrees to the shock tower.
Some movement is of course allowed but not to much. So make sure it's mounted correctly.

No. Will not make any sleeve solution. It's only a addition and not a solution and not perfect in any way. I have some much better ideas which I started to test and but have some tuning to do and will test other ideas as well before going into production with it. But I think and hope it will be worth it eventually

There are some more places in Europe.
Currently getting the first orders landed in the U.K.

In Asia the first orders just arrived so will take some weeks until they have arrived in shops.

For the US A-main hobbies will bring them to the states. They just got pricelists and we are waiting for the first order hopefully this or next week.
