Anyone need an awesome shock?

This thing looks legit

I told my suspension guy to stiffen the rear up a bit, and I'm pleased with the result.

I told my wife to "stiffen" my front up a bit.
She's pleased with the result!

Not a '"hard tail" but a rear suspension stabilizer.
Rock-solid stable...

Re: Anyone need an awesome shock?

That shock looks mmmm fubar'd.

You could market it as a easy wheelie device. With no squat in the rear the front should come up nice and quick

Sradiator loving the senna avatar. I watched the last race live. Think I cried. Even at that young age I knew that he was gone. Shocked Motorsport to its core. Perhaps his greatest legacy is the safety now inherent in all forms of Motorsport.

I have been researching some of his history along with the movie and the cause of both the crash and his death.
I cry every time I watch the movie.
The outpouring of his people (my wife's people as well) was Unbelievable! (touches the heart every time I watch)
All of Brazil cried for days!

I want to buy it to hang it in the garage, it would be a great conversation piece.
