Shock Oil Testing
Testing oil options for our Cygnus Performance X-1 Coilovers. We are simulating conditions that are far beyond anything that you will actually subject your suspension to. This video shows a shock dyno running continuously at 20 inches per second. We are torture testing several different types of oil for 24 hours straight. We constantly monitor damping force and temperature. After many different tests shocks are fully broken down. Components and seals are inspected. Oil is fully analyzed. This is only the beginning. Once all of our controlled lab tests give us some initial data we will run the oil in real-world conditions on actual cars that are driven on the street and on the track. Many of the coilover brands that cost well over $3,000 don’t do any of this. No one else does this at the sub $2k price range.⠀⠀⠀⠀
If all customers truly understood the difference between what we are doing and what every other shock manufacturer in this price range is doing we would sell every set of coilovers in this price range. No one else does this level of Subaru specific R&D. No one else uses high-quality European and Japanese internal components at this price point and virtually no one else builds and dynos coilovers in the United States at this price point. Proper suspension R&D, high-quality components and strict quality control will get you dramatically better results. Better performance, better ride quality, better longevity and better support.
