Default Interested....

Just wondering since Tex is working with XRay dirt junkies and when these are finally production pieces, if Tex will start working with XRay ONROAD 'wheels' to produce sedan shocks?

Hmmm?

Given that I've seen prototype stuff in action, I'd have to say that you might want to be a bit more patient. Development is one thing... production is another issue altogether.

Look up the "Halo" system for paintball. Is that vaporware? Same inventor...

Patience, grasshopper!

23 pages of buildup and I'm walking away with hobbyblueballs
In my short time driving thus far having my car bottom out has been the most common cringe moment for me.
I've considered padding or an internal spring to solve this, but this fancy magnet rig seems interesting. Hope to see it soon.

what car are you running there as many ways to solve bottoming out without the need for magna force style shocks
but from what has been said about the shocks seems like it will work well for certain conditions where you can run softer shocks without bottoming out.
On the other hand with magnets in there might get the same bounce effect just produced by the shock instead of the chassis never the less would like to try a pair when they do get to the market
