MRC Hydroshox Opinions

Has anyone else seen the release of Mittler Bros Hydroshox? I have been waiting for a race inspired suspension design to run on big wheel frame laying trucks for years. I believe it has finally arrived.

I have never dealt with hydraulic parts, but have been using air suspension setups for years. Anyone else excited? Any concerns with someone running hydraulic fluid?

Diesel brothers put out a truck on hydroshox on TV. Looks very promising. Anyone else happen to see the show?

I saw part2 of that build but it didn't go into a lot of detail..it may have had more in part1...it looks expensive from what I saw

Re: MRC Hydroshox Opinions

I've had plenty of hydraulic experience, but in terms of lowriders, they are far from what I'd call a performance suspension. I've never seen these particular units in use, so maybe they built a better mouse trap?

Usually the issue with hydraulics is weight, leaks, and ultra high pressure. Its much easier to clean up a damaged air line than it is to clean up 5 gallons of jack oil.

Re: MRC Hydroshox Opinions

The technology is leap years ahead of 'traditional' hydraulic set-ups but I bet it comes @ a price.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....
