I think hes talking about the Computer Controled Ride.

Push down on each corner of the car and see how many bounces you get. My car hardly even gets one bounch before it settles down flat. Mine are still good and I have 109k on mine.

Computer control is available but they are very expensive.

Monroe is your best bet.
