Post Shock Dyno: $10/shock

m2cupcar linked this website for a circle racer radiator and I found them offering shock dyno's for $10/shock.

ROEHRIG SHOCK DYNO SERVICE



"Brent Walker owner of Arts Racemart is our Roehrig Factory Trained Shock technician. Brent was Factory Trained By QA1 on their shock line and has 6 years experience building, repairing,and revalving QA1 and AFCO shocks.

We can test any brand of shock, normal Dyno Fees are $10.00 per shock.

Call 660-465-2069 or email to artsracemart.com for instructions on how to."


Thought this was a pretty good deal. Would be good for buying eBay shocks and testing em on the cheap.

The $10/shock is most probably a 6 point curve which is ok but not very representative.

it's a force vs velocity curve. the faster you compress the shock, the harder it gets to compress.

she sharp bend on the left side of all three curves means that there's a transition from slow speed movement (eg body roll, smooth road undulations) and high speed movement (small bumps, road roughness) so that the slow movements are highly damped and the fast movements are less damped than they otherwise would be.

this is so you can control handling and not sacrifice comfort. the valving is called "digressive" (the spelling seems to vary depending on who you ask)

a linear shock (no bend) would mean that running over a bott dot or road reflector would jar you as if you had a steel rod instead of a shock.
