It's a pass through design so the volume of the shock shaft never changes.

Cool design and it adds that "trick" look.

Very trick looking, but in reality they would offer far less options in offroad. They might prove to be more consistent in onroad as they are easy to build once you get the hand of them (I.e 1/12 rear shock)

If you build a "traditional" rc shock as an emulsion you can have a pseudo three rate. With these your compression and rebound rate would only change with temperature. I'm glad were seeing more options in shock technology, we've got along way to go.

Do they have US distrubtion setup or will they ship to me in the states?

So it's basically the shocks from a 12R5 (and some other 12th scales..) scaled up for use on a touring car? Did I miss something?

these are sweet. not likely to handle any/much differently, but the shock should leak less, hold up longer between rebuilds, and obviously, offer a 'true zero' rebound. not a revolutionary idea, but as mentioned, a step in the right direction.

Hm, seals on both ends. Sounds like twice the chance of leaking, twice the parts to rebuild and twice the stiction.

At least with these dampers, it will be way easier to re-build, fill to overflowing, cycle once to get rid of any air bubbles under the piston, and fill to overflowing again and screw on the cap. Done.

It will, at the very least, make all the dampers on your car consistent.

It is still, a single rate system--compression and rebound are the same. Whatever happened to that MIP piston system that offered independent compression and rebound tuning for off-road vehicles?
