    Okay, who's the lucky SOB with the PUSH DHX...

    So one of the Team Honda racers posted a PUSH DHX coil for a 5-Spot in the MTBR Classifieds. I hit him up within half an hour but it was gone.

    And please don't post up how great it rides. No need to rub it in.

    Yup, wouldn't want to talk about how great the compression adjustment, or the downhill performance of this shock is.

    Squeak, that is just SO WRONG of you to post that pic. Teasing the folks here with a pic that could have just been swiped from Darren, I mean, it's not even a pic of the shock on your bike. What a poseur.
    You should have posted a pic like this one.



    Now that's teasing!
    'Zilla, all I know about sucking up to Darren I learned from Squeak.

    Actually Renny,
    that DHX with Ti spring is mine, not Darren's.

    I know it's yours Squeak. I was just saying that to build up more drama in this thread. It's a trolling tactic I've learned. See how well it worked? We got 'Zilla and SSINGA all pissed off. My day is complete.

    Okay okay, I get it. Just make me feel worse that I came --><-- close to joining the club. Did I should mention he was selling for only $175 with 2 springs? Makes it even worse.

    I think I'll just have to send my RP3 in.

    I don't know.... what do you think Squeak? Are these "lesser than mortals" worthy of knowing the truth?
    I been waiting for Darren to release the product so I can come out of the closet about. Getting tired of waiting......

    That was my buddy...

    He is selling his 5 spot after taking one ride on my new Nomad. He ordered his Nomad the next day. I can say that he really takes care of his stuff, so whoever is getting the frame/shock, it will be in immaculate condition.

    homebrew

    Homebrew,
    no where in the ad. did it say it was a Push DHX. It just says he will add a Fox DHX coil for an extra $175.

    Did I miss something? Still looks like a good deal, but I don't think anyone would be selling their Pushed DHX at this point.

    Please let me know if I missed something!

    Okay, so you don’t think I’m a total dick, here are some beans. This is simply my impression, not those of push industries. Do not assume that my shock will feel like your pushed shock on your pack/RFX. I use a 2.5 stroke shock, with a lower leverage ratio; it feels different than the stock shock length.
    The upgrade essentially starts with gutting the stock dhx. The only parts reused are what you see externally. The new piston is designed to flow oil. The piston isn’t some simple thing, there are lots of trick features milled into it. Most of your compression and rebound characteristics are created for you when the piston is shimmed per your specifications. The adjustment knobs are fine tuners only. The piggyback is completely gutted, the boost valve and chamber assembly is gone. What you get is a compression adjuster that affects mid and high speed compression. No low speed or propedal adjustment per se. My experience with the compression adjuster leads me to believe that it regulates the amount of oil flow on the compression flow from a bunch to a whole bunch more! Twisting the knob doesn’t deaden the shock, make it harsh, or insensitive to small input. This shock is built to flow oil, and it seems to do that very well.
    The shock shines at higher shaft speeds. It is insane how in control and stable my bike feels at warp speed.
    The bottom out bumper is not an afterthought, it is part of the system. Push put a lot of time into selecting the proper material for this application. For lack of a proprietary term, there are 6 or 7 different densities of this bumper; the proper one selected for you is dependant on your weight and riding application. Darren did a great job selecting mine. On drops and jumps, when the bumper comes into play, the transition is smooth and seamless.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, so what you're saying is that it's essentially a "big" Vanilla RC: No PP & BV. The only externally adjustable feature is the Rebound and Compression. The magic, if you will, is in the piston itself which is where the science and art of damper design lies.

    BTW, just to make myself clear, I am only talking about your shock and not the other versions that will come with PP and BV. This post is based solely on the information contained in this thread and is not intended to represent or claim any intimate knowledge of the internals thereof.

    so when are these kits going to be available
    We've been shipping them for about a week now. Unfortunately due to the backlog of DHX service work, I haven't been making too much noise about it.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, so what you're saying is that it's essentially a "big" Vanilla RC
    For the sake of the sport I hope that Chad, James, Ricky and the rest of the Motocross/Supercross field don't find out that the best the factories have to offer are "big Vanilla RC's"!

    Here, here, what is this about a longer shock stroke and a lower leverage ratio on the RFX? I've been trying to keep up with the franken-creations here on the Turner board but apparently I'm failing miserably. If there is a post or posts that would catch me up on Sir Rene's setup a link would be much appreciated. Thanks and have a nice day.

    Correction: moto uses "Really Big Vanilla RC2s" with tricked out pistons (e.g. Gold Valve), of course...you know what I meant.

    Glad to hear the production DHX mods have been shipping.

    To say this shock is like a big vanilla rc is a baaaaaad comparison, It would be like saying an avy is a big rc, and a ccdb is a big rc. or, as Darren said, the top motocross racers are riding big rc's.
    It would be like comparing the stock damping in my former dirt bike to the race-tech gold valves I later put in it.
    You get the idea.

    Of course!!! I understand your and Darren's point. I was not comparing the quality of damping per se. I think we can agree that Darren would not realease any mods if it didn't have much much better damping characterictics relative to stock. Pardon the oversimplification but my point was that the trick is in the piston regardless of the external adjustments (obviously, other factors also come in to play like quality seals, oil, BO bumper, etc. which makes for an awesome package).
