Advance Design shock dyno plots?

Basicially what the topic says... anyone ever get a set of these from Susko and put them on a shock dyno? I'm doing some research to figure out if a project would be feasible, and baseline readings from something that *worked* would be fantastic.

Jim Susko, he owns/runs GForce Engineering. He's spent more time on the FB suspension than probably anybody.

Advance Design has a dyno, so starting there with a request makes sense. Remember that they can make a custom set for you, so if one of their typical off-the-shelf applications (Susko's?) doesn't work for your project, you can always request something else:

The problem is, evidently even Susko can't get ahold of them; you'll notice they're not offered from his site anymore either. But since the valving's been evolved for so long for the FB to the point where it works excellently (Tom Thrash anyone?) they're an excellent baseline. And if the damping curves can be duplicated with something rebuildable (say, the classic Bilstein revalvable setups) it'd be kinda nice.

edit: thought you were talking about 3rd Gens. In which case it would make no sense to try duplicating an FB setup. Good luck...
