Yeah, it should give a bigger range of ride heights, but whether it's enough to run rubber tires, would have to be tried.

With my X10'16 Pro10, with 55mm foam tires, the lowest I can get is just over 5mm, and I'd like to run 3-4mm, so I should at least be okay for that! Outdoors, I know people running 63mm tires on their Associated 10R5.1, running at 6mm ride height, thinking they might go down to 5-5.5mm... If I ran 63mm tires, the lowest I would get would be 9mm ride height!!!

The small plastic bit that the centre shock balls screwed into on the X10'16 were the only weak point on durability, I hope they got rid of that (they did on the X12'16, I believe?).

Their sloppy front end has also been a problem historically, with both the X10 and the X12, but they say that "excess play in the steering block and front upper ball joints was removed", we'll see?
