Well played sir, well played!

In all seriousness I was dumbfounded why nobody has done this already. I have what I would term a decent background in suspension and shocks. Having owned an offroad specialty shop and fabrication business in San Diego Ca, black rhino performance (Mods that not a plug my partner ran it into the ground when I went overseas so don't buy anything from that idiot!) Did quite a bit of development work with i-Shock, Fox Shocks, hydrodynamics and King including building some race vehicles. So I have spent a fair amount of time building shim packs and checking telemetry results on a few coilovers in my time.

So I must say that this is the first product I have seen that is actually a functional scaled down version of full size coil over shock piston. Outstanding!

Do you plan on having shim packs of various thickness or materials with different stiffness down the road?

I see that you went with the compression side shim first but it would appear that you have a design with a dampening side shim due out maybe too? I always found that setting up the dampening shim pack to be far more difficult and time consuming then the compression side. Hats off for doing the port reliefs on your pistons (from what I can see from the Solidworks renderings that is or do you use Pro-E?) Regardless.

Guys this would appear to be the real deal of shock pistons, If I wasn't over here in Asscrackistan I would be all over these!

Mr. Cesaretti watch out though I still think I have a solid 16mm piston design...LOL

Cheers mate and best of luck to you!
Ciao Contingency,

first, sorry for my terrible English

I read that you have considerable experience with cushions, molto bene!!

The pictures are not yet available, because of the official presentation at the Nürnberg Toy Fair.

However, you can see photos of old pistons...

Surely I will create a more professional site, but for now I still want to have fun to design and build components for our cars

For those who want more information, I suggest to visit the news section of my website and read the available pdf files.

Saluti da Tiziano

Bump. I'm surprised that there isn't more traffic on this thread. This is essentially the 1st shim-stack adjustable (a true full scale suspension technology) shock piston in this hobby.

Peter Martin/TKO, what have your guys been finding, can you report?

I couldn't agree any more! I keep hoping that Tex produces them sometime.

Ciao Tiziano, is good to see you around here!

I have been running C2 shock pistons from several months ago with very good results, definitely help me to improve my car handling specially on rutted-bumpy tracks

Are Tex's shocks the one that had the magnets on them?

Last weekend at the international Indoor race at Quakenbrueck ( germany) i tried the new Ride Control Pistons and they are awesome. In the 5 minutes of training I only get 10 rounds. After Tiziano gave me a Set of Mugen Buggy shocks i´ve been completed 11 laps and in Q2 and I've even managed 12 laps.
The car was simply more stable on the smooth artificial turf surface and I could concentrate more on driving. No traction roll in fast corners..
I bought a set of his new pistons.. 2 other guys who tried them improved their laptimes too.

i already used the first edition of his pistons..but the new one with the steel valve plates are much better.

Used already the versions for the Agama A8 Evo, Losi 8ight Truggy and now the Mugen MBX-6T.

and Tiziano supports his customer..i broke my first set of the losi pistons..and he sent me a new set of pistons a week later..
