Ok... just FYI. I had a chat with Tex last night and he showed me some stuff about them...

1) Yes, there is special valving. See #2.

2) Compression and rebound can be set differently.

3) "Pack" is adjustable indpendently.

4) "Threshold" (I think that is what Tex called it) is independent of the other settings.

5) They are mechanically simple (no complex stuff to make failure more likely) and once you see how they work you'll understand adjusting them. Testing is still going on, they're working up a lot of data to help folks get setup right or very close to right initially.

A local racer that I used to run about equal with changed to an MBX6T with these shocks, (prototype versions) and now spanks me like a redheaded stepchild. I WANT SOME!

Hey Brad, thanks for the update! Did Tex happen to say anything about when we can expect to see them for sale? Will they be available for Spring 2010 in time for nitro season ? ANY info would be appreciated.

Off the top of my head... I'm pretty sure on one, and I think 2. There may be more. Sorry, the name of the first escapes me at the moment... but I think MAYBE Jason Branham is running them. Not sure, but I think so.

Don't know if Nick Vanderpool is still running them or not I'm sure he is.

He was in town last night at Indy with Tex and they were running the 808E and Nitro, so I'm sure they were running them last night on both cars for testing.

Forgot to ask Nick if he was headed to the MAW, but if he is I'm sure you will see them on his car unless he has stop running them.

Yup, he's going. That's the name I couldn't remember. I'm really bad with names.

Me too, I can't wait until all the testing is complete..I really hope they come before the race season starts here..not too long left before that happens though.

Tex, if you are doing pre-orders, please PM me.

Proof? - Can't offer you anything good here except if someone gets on that has run them during our preproduction phase.

Release date? - Late April to early may.

Its simple. If we deliver a shock that can do what we say it does then give it a try. If it does not do all of those things to offer you that adjustability then don't buy them. It just makes sense. I will not cry about it.

I have several patents and am involved in other industries. Stay tuned and hopefully you will be very pleased. I'm working hard for that.
TEX


Did you mean late April to early may 2010?
