"The Red One Mysterium X has an internal low-pass filter. This will block out infrared light for about 4 to 5 stops. So you don’t need to add a Hot Mirror or IR filter unless your ND is greater than 1.2 or so."
Is this true!!?

By my limited understanding, the Tiffen T1 is a Far-Red filter (680 - 720nm). It was not designed for the RED MX, but for cameras with narrower spectrum internal filters that allow through a certain range of Far-Red, such as Alexa and the various Sonys.
I'm not at all familiar with REDs, but from what I've read I believe the Hot Mirror is a more appropriate IR filter:
