ill try that sometime. 90% of my crashes include people hitting me from the side, but if i get into another frontal impact ill be sure to try it.

All nylon parts has been redesign.. machined shock piston will be available as well from 1 to 4 holes.

Everything you imagine about the shock is different: starting from foam insert to the way you fill the oil in and bleed them are all hapening from the bottom parts. Yes, the whole top it just considered as an housing, things are the other way around now... I think I remember someone mentioned `truly Serpent R&D`

Having not seen an actual product i.e. wild e-speculation here, it sounds very much like shocks you find in Losi buggies - which have been out for donkeys so the "truly serpent R&D" might be a tad generous . Having said that, they don't have the hole adjustment feature, or at least when I stopped playing with buggies - can't get to a track
