So are we not going to talk about the new/pending shocks rules then?

The problem is getting a baseline...  I tried for a few years to get Bilstein to commit to a 'spec range' for a better test spec for NASA and Bilstien wouldn't do it...  The current shocks that are used have such a large of a manufacturing variance that they would not commit.  Now, it was 4yrs ago that I last tried so it could be better now.
 
Personally, I think a real race dampener should be chosen and grandfather in a change to the better shock over a two-year span.  Dump the junk and go with a real shock - The new shock could still be procured through Mazdaspeed and should be sealed (by them?) too.  There still is enough money in the class that I believe a move like this is warranted.

John, curious, 4 years ago when you viewed the shock variance was it wider than the video variance shown by Shaikh in his video?

Forgetting all the politics within the video the variance of these 9 shocks starts at approx. 9:34.

What does SRF do?  And does it work?

I just bought a Spec Miata. I was racing SRF3. The SRF/SRF3 shocks are adjustable rebound Penske. They are $2000 a set and about $1500 to rebuild. I do not think theirs is a good solution.
