    That's what I was saying. In order to have a feasible system for racing it would have to have a prediction system. For daily drivers a moment of impact system could work though.

    If the bottle is properly strapped down it shouldn't go anywhere though.

    Embedded systems are your friend here! Embedded systems are dedicating a processor to basically a single function so it would take multiple embedded systems, but they are relatively cheap to design and respond very rapidly since they only have 1 or 2 things to worry about. They could then communicate to a larger system capable of handling all the traffic of the smaller systems.

    I'm sure it can be done. Most anything can be done if you have enough money and limited constraints. Google has built cars that can literally drive themselves around town, know how to react to stop signs and other cars and everything. They have logged over 600,000 miles in these cars with no issues. But the systems to do this are huge and expensive. They take up the entire trunk space of the vehicle. So it can be done, but it's just no where near feasible yet and may never be.

    I will be the dissenting voice here. My truck rides as well as a factory Tacoma on the street. The spring rate is more stiff so it doesn't wallow around in the corners (body roll) as bad as a stock one, but the valving absorbs small imperfections in the road, like potholes and expansion joints as well as a factory truck. You guys should ride in one that's valved right. I took one ride in a full LT truck and started buying parts that month. I have a progressive valving rate due to the shock design as well as bypass set up. It's soft at ride height, and ramps up to massive resistance in the bump zones. I also think "smart" shocks will eventually catch up to the offroad performance of kings/fox/icon, but it will be many years from now. Street tuning is easy. Offroad shock tuning is more of a black art, and really tuned more to the driver than the car.

    EDIT: also it is moot point not mute point.

    Nope, they built it into their RS9000 shocks.
    I don't think it worked very well though because there isn't anybody carrying the controller, and the shocks now have a manual tuning valve thingymabob.

    I see. I seem to recall you saying at one point, that people who ride with you are surprised at how rough it rides on road, but are then stunned at how smooth it is offroad.

    Also I have never road in a bone stock 2nd gen so I don't know what it rides like. My rear may actually be smoother than I think it is. I am basically comparing it to my front. My front is way smoother than my rear. I can hit huge speed bumps and my front end just smoothly glides across them and my rear is somewhat jarring (at least compared to the front that you don't even feel it). When I get off road my front end can't keep up with the rear though. I can't really compare my new setup to my old per se, because I didn't exactly hit specific speed bumps with old setup in a manner of "collecting data" for comparison. I do know the new bucks less than the old and I can go faster through whoops. haha It doesn't help that the old setup there were about 4 months between removing the old setup and completing the new one, which I have yet to even take it out completed.

    I've fixed a lot of stuff since then... Mostly turned the tubes wide open at ride height, new tires at a lower psi, and insulated the shocks better with poly bushings. One of my kings is leaking, time for a rebuild and I might play with the valving even more (softer compression) as I can't bottom it out as it is. Well, I could, but it would require some likker. :D
