They are not air shocks, Tesla and most auto manufacturers with Air suspension use a standard fluid filled shock absorber. They are using what the industry calls and Air SPRING damper or strut. The air bag portion replaces the spring in the assembly, not the fluid filled shock. Air shocks are what some hot rodders used to use to jack up the rear or there cars for wider tires.. they are terrible.http://score-international.com/raceinfo/rule-book/truck-classes/stock-full/
(edit to add: These are the rules for the SCORE 250 class that I think the CT would be part of)
It says "No air shocks" and "No secondary suspension allowed". I wonder what they would consider the CT's ride control.
So if the rules said no air suspensions, air struts or air spring dampers then Tesla would not be allowed to compete.
