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.

Its about time with all this new tech out in the world that someone used it to produce a new rc shock good for you guys, i hope they dont leak

Nothing.... there has not been any news in quite a while.... I ran into the same thing until I realized that the thread was started a long time ago....

No worries guys this is a dead thread and it was only a mind game as there is NO information nor truth that has been brought to life to make this into something that we will be seeing anytime soon. Personally I think it was a complete farse.

The shocks were real. 2 friends of mine in Texas did extensive testing with them when Tex made the prototypes using XRAY shocks. That was a very long time ago though and right after TEX said they were going into production was right when everything went quiet. It's been an abnormal amount of time so my best guess would be that due to lack of quality or atronomical costs in manufacturing Tex scrapped the whole idea, but that's just a guess. After all this time I'd bet it's safe to say these shocks are pretty much dead though

Not sure why the project never came to life although I am sure it was a good reason or many.

Cmon guys, if the thread was as old as it was....seems better to let it rest???
He's the guy that took over Indy?

Should have sold the design to the highest bidder... Then don't have to worry about it.

If, in fact, there are any bidders...

These 'state of the art' new wave experiments show up time and again in the hobby.

That's all they end up being, experiments. If the biggest names with the deepest pockets aren't willing to 'pony up' to Joe Smoe's latest, greatest, fastest....odds are Joe realizes his limited wallet is hardly worth the risk....

About twenty years ago....when magnetic ride control was conceived....

Given it was introduced in 2002...and technology rarely evolves 'over night'...you can bet the engineers at GM were cooking this for a while.

GM engineers lay claim to this one. It had been played within the F1 ranks many years prior...but abandoned knowing the sanctioning bodies would chit all over it.

The technology is hardly rocket science, it was basically a matter of controlling the substrate within the damping medium, as the technology became available it became second nature to pursue it to the production level.

2002

Yes but if what I have heard about this shock is true, that is NOT what it is.

Also if what I heard is true, I believe there is a much easier way to do it that doesn't involve the shocks at all. There is a 1/12th using the same idea external to the shock in fact.
