MIP ‘Real Shocks’ Bypass1 piston technology

MIP have announced the release of their ‘Real Shocks’ Bypass1 piston technology. Unlike any piston seen before in the RC Industry, this Piston is design inspired by Real Off-Road Vehicles. The basic drawback of a stock piston is that when the shock compresses, all of the oil must be forced through the provided holes at once. Of course, this design works to an extent, but as the shock moves faster and more force is applied the oil simply cant travel through the holes fast enough. Because of this, the shock will actually pack out thus hindering the cars handling. MIP’s Bypass 1 piston regulates the amount of oil transferring from the bottom of the shock to the top depending on the amount of velocity and force the shock is subject too. The allow a car’s shocks to perform unhindered and gives the driver and endless range of adjustability.
