This is the optional RB Products "A.D.S." Automatic Damping System Set, for the Serpent S811 Cobra family of 1/8 buggies. When setting up your shocks, there are a multitude of options and finding a perfect shock setup is critical for success on the track. With a variety of piston shapes, hole shapes and sizes, there are hundreds of possible combinations. When you combine this with oil weight and rebound settings, finding a dialed shock setup becomes time consuming and overwhelming.
A variety of companies tired to make progressive shocks, using pistons with floating balls, variable valving, conical holes and cone shaped pistons, but have never been successful in developing a true progressive rate shock. Until now! Developed and tested over two years in collaboration with Fioroni, the patented RB Products ADS system is an incredibly unique product that delivers unmatched progressive damping characteristics. So now, when you are tuning your shocks, the only thing you need to change is the shock oil and spring and you can eliminate the valving from the equation.
How Does it Work?
The patented ADS system features a unique inner sleeve that is fitted inside your existing shock body, with V-shaped cuts machined into the sides, combined with a solid delrin piston that does not have any valving. As the piston moves through the shock body, the oil is pushed into the cuts in the sides of the sleeve, allowing the piston to move through the oil without hydro-locking. The V-shape cuts in the side of the sleeve allows more oil to pass by the piston at the bottom of the stroke, and less oil to pass by as the top of the stroke. This provides a progressive and gradual increase in shock pack as the piston compresses, and allows the piston speed to increase as the shock rebounds.
