to send us an email if you have questions on updating to v2.4 B from an earlier version.


2) Shock Dyno - Big Force Testing We often get questions like "Can a 1.5 HP motor handle the 'high tie down' shocks now used in many circle track classes?"   We recently ran one of these JRI shocks with close to its max 'tie down' setting with the results shown below.  You will see that it is handling over 1850 lbs at about 6 in/sec.  This is a fully computerized, very rugged, "scotch yoke" shock dyno starting at the low price of just $4499.

  to review all the information on our very affordable Shock Dyno.
