My observation from watching the video was the performance was pretty much equal, with the MTS perhaps loosing the control edge. So many variables to consider including line of travel. Price difference would be a choice factor as I wouldn't purposely do what I saw in the test. I'd like to see stock,vs shock therapy, vs MTS.

I’m also trying to find out what MTS warranty is like ST is lifetime warranty

I think I would give the edge there to ST after watching the video. Both looked to perform very well. However, since that does not in any way, shape or form represent how I ride, it is kind of useless to me. I ride rough, rocky, slow trails and rock crawl. Show me a comparison in those conditions with speeds < 20 mph and that will mean something to me.

I was thinking the exact same thing. ST by a small edge, and I’d never ever drive or even ride like that. I probably wouldn’t drive half that fast!

Cool video though, I rarely finish something like that but I watched all of this one.

Sigh. I'm finding myself looking at vehicle pad scales for precise weight bias numbers, spring compressors, rebuild/tuning parts, oils. Planning a test track with specific obstacles for timed comparisons on the back 40.....these things are just a black hole.

Take a deep breath, everything’s going to be ok!

I would hope so.. but I’ve heard a couple folks say they didn’t think the revalve was necessary after they had it done.
I can see that.
If you’re riding the dunes or high speed desert, I can see where revalving would come into play. Otherwise no thanks.
