I have a question about this.. DOes it really matter that Foxes have a bigger resi? Also about having Kings on 90% of trophy trucks and class 1, is it due to the support they get? Looking at a couple websites, KING VS Fox in performance seems to be about the same. Just wondering..I've seen the internals of lots of Bilsteins, Stay-A-Ways, Foxes, and Kings, and I've had personal experiences with the latter three, and King is always my number one choice. I know that Fox makes a great shock, but I've had a few personal bad experiences with them, and if they were superior to King I don't think 90% of Trophy Trucks and Class 1s would be running Kings. Also, alot more people go from Fox to King rather than the other way around. In the end though, you probably can't go wrong with either two. Radflos and some of the other new kids on the block haven't really proved themselves yet; Bilsteins make a great mild off-road shock, and the Blackhawks are insane but expensive and still working out the bugs (not to mention not really applicable for our trucks); and SAWs should pretty much be avoided at all costs, though they have improved their shit so they are an option for a tight budget (though I would recommend used Foxes or Kings over new SAWs).
No. The few more ounces of fluid doesn't help with cooling if that's what you're asking. The extra fluid really helps mainly with valving and marginally with cooling.I have a question about this..

That comparison was a bit biased towards Fox IMO I don't think it was completely accurate. I go w/ Fox because of the deals I get, really once you're paying that much the difference in price is pretty marginal.ya.. That is what I was just wondering. Seems like the foxes are alittle bit cheaper to rebuild as well?? Just wondering. I did the whole fox vs. kings and they seem very close to each other. WHere one is a little more of on the "con" side, the other winds up being the "pro" anyways.. I went with foxes since they were cheaper than Kings. But to each is own I guess right?
Tweeter, so if Im reading what you said right, that even though Fox has bigger resi, The resi holding a little more oil really wont do that much in valving and some cooling?? Then I wonder why they have a larger resi?? lol
Nope.question using this illustration and knowing fixed factors, would it really then matter if it is a King or Fox?
Pretty sure they do. You can add reservoirs to Donahoes quite easily actually, has a Schrader valve right? What do you think reservoirs attach to? Also you're going to be running less speeds with a relatively stock travel truck, think about it.Also why then does people like Dhoe not have resi's but it is ok for them to race on what seems to be standard shocks?
It can be debated. Without exact numbers and mathmatical equations I honestly couldn't tell you. I think ANY extra fluid makes it smoother. After that the actual volume of oil making the shock rebound/compress easier could be true or not, I don't know. I never claimed to be smart or anythingAlso just knowing from this illustration, A bigger resi in length and in width seems to do a whole lot for a smoother stroke for compression right?
