I've heard that regarding off-road shocks, but at the moment I'm not a believer. I predict that accurately testing a typical unpressurized, variable-volume RC shock will show a decreasing slope in the graph of force vs velocity, all the way up to cavitation (where it falls off a cliff).

If proper testing proves me wrong, then you may razz me incessantly in your preferred manner for a period of one week.

I have no predictions for a constant-volume ("shaft-through") shock.
