More info needed. My Google fu is failing. Pretty sure we know which wayne, but not much info anywhere on this.

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....

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

so they replaced bybass valve spring with nitrogen spring.
gets un linear spring curve in to valve

QUOTE: a nitrogen valve instead of the spring in the tube. Says it holds the car up longer and takes the hit smoother.
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 .

I know I questioned the single 3" IBP coilover on the front of Jordan Pelligrinos new car and they said it was getting the re-circulating resi's like their Gen2 Raptor shocks to help ensure they didnt get shock fade. I dont know if they had any shock fade issues, but with a front engine car, with a 3" IBP that has the fluid volume of a standard 2.5" shock I was doubting it for sure especially for the first lap of desert section.

OK, what's this secret squirrel sauce from Fox
I asked Jason what changes fox made.
He said larger bypass tubes and a nitrogen valve instead of the spring in the tube. Says it holds the car up longer and takes the hit smoother.
Need someone smarter to decode the “nitrogen valve” part. Haha
From the pics I have and I was looking for the servos, it didn’t have servos on any bypass tube or c/o resi.

You can see the bypass tubes on Jason's car in a few of the pictures. It doesn't look like servo activated bypasses.
Unless they did something with the coil-over? I'm not familiar with the system they run on the Raptor or RZR's.

I spent many time consuming hours of try and test re-valving of the Bilstein 7100s on my previous truck and Radflos on my current. In the end I got them where they were performing great, but at least having electronic data logging would make it so much quicker to dial in. I know this is in use in motorsports generally but it doesn't seem to have trickled down yet.

I don't know if they have adopted this to motorsports shocks, but could be.

|Beat95YJ||I presume it’s their electronically controlled shocks that compensate for inertia, steering angle, etc. I guess fox makes it for the new raptors also. They have a couple of jeeps running around with it and a couple old raptors.|
