Have you been trying to find a shock absorber for your car that can not only deliver a great ride, but adapt to the harsh abuse of racing? We just heard about a complete shock absorber system from Ridetech, that can do just that.
Instead of using a magnetorheological fluid like you’ll find in the Chevrolet Corvette, RideTech has developed a shock absorbing system that operates in a similar fashion, but uses normal fluid with a high pressure, quick reacting bypass solenoid that’s set for 100-percent pressure, then bleeds off appropriately in mere milliseconds. According to the RideTech website, Instinct Shock Absorbers electronically adjust from luxury-car comfortable to super-car aggressive in mere milliseconds.
What You Get
- Four electronic RideTech coilover shock absorbers with remote reservoirs
- DSC Sport electronic control module
- Sensors: including three-way G-load sensor, TPS, brake pressure, and VSS
- Wiring harness and sub-harnesses
- Comfort/Performance mode select switch
- RideTech custom Instinct calibration
- Tuning software and technical support
How does this system react instinctively? Stay tuned for an in-depth article in the near future, but in a nutshell, the RideTech Instinct system uses a fast-processing ECM that analyzes and adjusts dampening forces based on real-time inputs from a three-way G-load sensor, brake pressure, vehicle speed, and throttle position sensors. All four shocks work as a unit, and adjust within milliseconds to keep your car sure-footed during any driving scenario.
