What does everyone think of this? I'm curious as to whether or not this decreases shock life more than normal, what the cost of the controller will be & actual proof of handling improvement. Saw their video & all it showed was cars launching. Nothing with street driving or road course...

Very little information on how it controls the suspension or what it enables you to do. $1000 is a steep ask with no real explanation of its capability.

It would be cool if you could adjust your shocks to true a 90/10 front 50/50 rear set up. But even if that's doable $1000 is a Big ask vs just buying the actual gear.

All the magic is in the controller programming.
Dodge does a lazy job of programming the Mag ride controller.
This new controller use the functionality of the shocks much better, takes advantage of their ability to go from firm to soft in an instant and recalibrates all modes.
When launching the car, it will make the shocks act as close to a 50/50 rear, 90/10 front that you can get. Then when you dive into the return road at the end of the track it will firm up the shocks for reduced body roll and improved cornering.

For more info, read some reviews of the DSC controller from GTR and Corvette and Mustang owners who have used them. I have yet to find anyone that regretted the purchase.
FWIW, GM does a MUCH better job of programming their magride systems, and when you see how much the Vette/Camaro guys rave about what the new controler does it should make you wonder how much better your set up can actually be.

If that's the case then would definitely be interested, would be much easier vs hardware changes.
I do wish they would actually provide some proof for their claims though, actual data is always preferred vs claims. By that I mean what stetting does it have to be in to get that 90/10 50/50 Drag mode, track? or will there be a new drag mode on the page?

No new modes, these magride systems are based on real time damping, it senses what you are doing in real time and makes better/more precise adjustments to the shock settings than the factory controller ever could.
When it senses a launch, it will adjust the shocks to suit the immediate needs.
Where it used to stiffen things up in say, track mode, it will now have much more range of adjustment within the controller, to react to real time changes.
All modes are optimized once the controller is installed.

Yes, I work for Diablosport. As we are not a Vendor I am walking a fine line here and simply trying to provide answers to questions and keep the promotion to a minimum :)

No worries just looking for info and your reply is appreciated. The way I set up is track everything, suspension street, what would be optimal with new controller?

Not sure exactly what the best settings would be for each intended use, that may indeed require some experimenting for each vehicle/setup.
My guess would be that you'll use the same modes you did before, just with each mode being more effective and capable than it was before.

I love it already. Overnight shipped it.. received it yesterday. Definently a new feel of driving. Track mode stock. Rattled my teeth. This makes it more compliant to the point it feels firmer but reacts to the cracks and seams in the road. I noticed that car doesn’t get upset on the curvy road with uneven surfaces.

I’m interested to see how launch mode truly works now. From what I’ve gathered. Drag radials at the track using launch control can happen now provided you have the proper driveline mods.

I concur that GM does a much a better job with the magride controller. Its night and day difference from my Hellcat to my ZL1.

Yes the controller on the hellcat def changes how it feels. I can confirm that much as of now. It’s snowing today so I can cruise around today and play with it some more.

Awesome feedback. Its really hard to describe what this does to your car without experiencing it.
