Press Release from VRP:

Rebound System: Patented 10th XV3 Quick Rebound System.

Compression System: Reactive Compression System. The System is ‘Smart’. It senses shaft speed and reacts as needed. The Patented CFV (Compression Flex Valve) allows the Piston to have enhanced Slow Shaft Speed thru High Shaft Speed Compression.

Slow Shaft Speed Compression: At neutral, it is as soft as any shock with a normal set of comparable pistons. On the bench, you will find the suspension is subtle. It’s important that this stays in the range of what we run now, it is what makes the suspension soak up bumps and give forward grip as well as a responsive feel at the wheel. So the ‘Low Shaft Speed’ Compression very similar to what you know.

High Shaft Speed Compression: At High Shaft Speeds like landing a large jump, the CFV will flex and partially cover some of the flow thru the hole and provide additional damping, keeping the chassis off the ground. It flexes different amounts depending on the impact and the ‘shaft speed’, so it will respond accordingly. If for example you were to land a smaller jump, the CFV will flex less and provide the correct amount of damping at the time needed. Once the shaft slows down, the valve immediately returns to Slow Shaft Speed Compression, and the damping becomes softer.

Carbon Fiber Compression Flex Valve: Engineered with 20 years of composite experience, the actual Carbon Fiber is made in house at the VRP facility in Houston. It is unique. From the Carbon itself to the Resin its made with, the properties are designed and taylored for the purpose. They are similar to a reed valve for a musical instrument and care should be taken when handling them. Treated properly, they will last the lifetime of the vehicle.

6 Possible Levels of Pack: The Standard Pack of VRP 10th Gamechangers come with the medium, or the middle carbon valve. This valve gives a medium level of pack that is a great starting point, and gives you 2 possible pack rates that are right in the middle of the chart. Then there are 2 additional Carbon Valve shapes available separately. They include the Narrow and the Wide valves. This expands the possible pack range to 6 possible rates; Low-Low thru High.....all using one piston. This will allow you to dial in the perfect pack rate for your track.

New Era of Performance: You will never have a buggy land, respond, settle, and be ready for throttle quicker than the Gamechanger Piston. Many jumps and landings become a fluid motion with no chassis scrub or momentum loss. The pistons also make the car more true off the face of every jump because it does not dig in or scrub. You will find it easier to manage jumps both taking off and landing like never before. This makes your consistency increase and ultimately your racing success. Where the chassis scrubbed speed before, it won’t and you will gain valuable tenths around the entire track. It's a GameChanger!
