I cant remember weather it said they were legal or not. on his old website there was something about being legal but I dont remember if there was any other sanction besides ump legal on there.

I agree with racer4. Regardless of what kind of shock it is only one per wheel and no coilovers.

Good luck,
Superdave

it is VOIGTRACING.com and yes they are IMCA legal if you have a question call MARK VOIGT and ask him.

His new site is up and running and they are called The Easy Slide....

Sorry for the mis-information. I thought they were, and posted the incorrect information. Bret Root did in fact not legalize them for IMCA use because they are built in a shock body...however you should look at some of the guys running up front. You might be surprised, who is running them!!!

Nice idea, but think how hard this would be to tech without pulling the shocks & springs - you could be running a coilover and a "zero valve" shock on the other end... Or run a shock on both ends, etc.

I doubt they'll make them legal just for that reason alone.

If you ask me this is all absolutly crazy.All COE's have a giude system that is simular.A piston,cylinder and shaft.Who's to say that the old COE's as we know them (afco,Howe,etc.)couldn't have a hydraulic shock system within them.I have a set of COE's with the gutted bilstiens.They are bullet proof and worth every penny.I don't see how IMCA cannot except these.They have a housing and shaft just the same as any other COE.Thats my 2 cents.

Racer 4 ,yes I agree with you.It's hard to be governed by these rules when we as racers know what is the most cost effective.It's the age old story of the 9 inch vs the quick change.Or why not coil over shocks ? We all know what would be the cheapest in the long run but these rules sometimes cost us more in money and maintanence.It just p**s me off.

If I see them at my track I will ask the tech guy to check them after every race because if you slip a 2/6 shock in there the car will be faster.
