Default Ultra Smooth Shocks

Has anyone thought about using this Ultra-Ever Dry spray coating on the inside of their shocks?

Changing oil weights would be fast and effortless.

it says it works by creating a barrier of air between the liquid, and the surface.
I could also see it rubbing off in the shock.

could if abraded enough by the piston.. but a through rod shock wouldnt have that problem.. that would be interesting to apply to damper tubes and the like. thank you for the link!

I've looked into this stuff before for another reason (never thought about shocks). From what I've read it doesn't last as long as they make out and needs to be constantly reapplied.
Also if it did work as well as they say, I could actually see it causing oil to leak past the oring in a shock.

If this coating could take light abrasion, you wouldnt need orings. Just coat the shaft anf guide.
The space between after coating would be too small for oil to pass.

Could be nice for coating axles and stuff.
Even if its longevity is short now, someone will make something better. And better.

Remember, it says it works by creating at air layer between the surface and the fluid. So the shock would have a tiny amount of air between the oil, and the body when it was filled. I could see this tiny bit of air mixing into the oil eventually if the coating wore off.

@valk, I totally agree this stuff will develop and we could end up with something that could have many uses in the rc world.
Imagine racing off road in bad weather, it'd be great if the water/mud/grass would just fall off when you pick the car up!
But currently you only have to look at youtube to find out this stuff can stand no abrasion whatsoever, unfortunately.
