Alan is very good at this. One shock having air in it will have an impact on the balance of the car you'd suspect.

It'd always leaked a small amount of fluid everytime I moved it, the O-rings appear to have failed on the swivel joint that connects the canister to the damper, so we're hoping its a user serviceable part and it doesn't need to go back to the Netherlands.

I believe they're meant to be pressurised with Nitrogen Jeff.

The 4-way is our top product. The damper is adjustable in the low-speed compression, the high-speed compression ,rebound and the overall reach of the low-speed compression,these can all be adjusted separate. The inner works is much more advanced then our other dampers and contains 115 precision engineered parts.

The low-speed compression damping controls the front-rear and left-right movements of the car (“pitch” and “roll”).
The high-speed compression controls the movement of the wheels over sharp bumps, like marbles and curb stones.
The rebound damping controls the body movements and absorbs unwanted energies, which otherwise would unsettle the car.
Alan's going to run it on the dyno to see how the different settings affects the characteristics, as we have a set of notes from MIKRO (Mike Rowe) that show what both the Radical car's used to run with when raced in the FF championship, but there may be more optimal settings depending on the actual internals of the damper.

No pressure will make for a very odd handling shock I would think. Alan will get it all sorted for you I'm sure.
