So #76 is running 90/10's ?


If that "Nitrogen valve" can hold the car up and still take the whoops, basically making the car float, that is one hell of a calculating valve, I would think computer controlled or will be in the near future, because that is key for speed in the desert, probably made out of Plutonium or unobtainium .
FOX already has "Live Valve technology"

The secret to their new speed is the little Asian Ninja they have tuning the shocks. Mike is crazy good.

It doesn’t look too crazy to use n2 instead of a spring in the bypass.







Remove the spring. The plunger already has two orings.

Add two grooves and orings to the end cap, and replace the screw with a schrader valve.

Not sure the psi/force differences between the mechanical spring vs air spring and how/what it would achieve, but it looks like it worked.

Not sure the role it played in winning, but interesting tech.

How long before others are trying it....

thewayne valve as it has been coined has been around for probably 3yrs and theres a patent to go with it. it works really well and applied properly can do some cool things.
