    Those prices seem pretty steep compared to a newer company such as FOA. I would like to see a video of a truck out here in a desert race using them to their potential, not driven through a whoop section in 2nd gear for less than a minute.

    You want a guinea pig, send me a pair of shocks and I'll let you know the real test results. I'll run them on a rear 4-link through the desert as harsh as I can after taking on some valving adjustments.

    Yes, we cost more than FOA, because FOA is the least expensive shock you can buy anywhere.

    Our shocks are tested. Thanks for the offers.

    I will post some videos.

    No offense, but at this point, FOA has a lead on you. They had a King of Hammers (KOH) buggy run their shocks so we know they work, but that's not the hard part. Making sure they survive hours of long abuse without blowing seals is still a problem. If you want to make the company known on the west coast to compete with the older companies, let's see some footage of extreme abuse and most of all, a break down of the shock after said abuse.

    We have 3 cars at KOH this year running Profender shocks, more running our bumps.

    Brad Carrier has won ECORS class A for the past 2 years on our shocks, he never rebuilt them and they dont leak.

    Guys running Profender took 2nd and 5th at the RcRocs series at Rausch Creek.

    FOA makes a good shock, they cost the least of any shock, thats not a bad thing. They are good guys over there and do a great job. I never implied any different.
