Has anyone tried pistons from another brand in the big bore shocks?

I am not talking aftermarket. I am interested to know if AE 4.2 big bore pistons, Losi 22, etc., would work in the Durango.

AE/losi pistons are 12mm and Durango shocks are, I think, 14mm.

I think Schuey pistons might be the only ones to try besides durango.

As far as size goes they are the same, all 3 are 12mm. The new shuie shocks are 13mm so they will not fit, as you all know the Durango uses a screw to secure the piston to the shaft..both AE & Losi use a c clip, I have all 3 pistons and some spare shock shafts..I'll see if they fit..I don't think they will but you never know..

I've played with other companies pistons in my shocks while testing different setups at the track. The TD pistons are fine but I prefer the "taper" style pistons for their different compression and rebound characteristics. My friends at the track race Kyosho and TA cars and we swap pistons back and forth all day long looking for the right "feel".

I doubt I'd buy all the different pistons I've tested. Swaping back and forth with my friends on practice days just gives you more options.

Default Bman's SS Skid/Chassis plates

Just received the front and rear SS Skid/Chassis plates from BMan's 3XNT.
Thanks

Fit and Finish are perfect. Very thin and strong.
The Rear plate has more material and more mounting holes compared to his original version.
Weight - Front/10.6g and Rear/13.7g
Thickness - less than 1mm (0.88mm)

Will test in a few days.
I have no doubt that it will be way better than the stock alu plates that I used before. The Stock alu plates were 2.5mm and really picked up a lot of clay and debris.

Still using the dimec chassis with the broken rear end
Will report back in a few days.

TD come with 6 hole, and do not work at the tracks I run at. The four hole 1.2 and 1.3 are best.

I don't like the idea of using toothpicks or melting the extra holes closed. I have also read 2 hole pistons work well, but again i would need to plug holes or drill my own.... Not my first option. AE makes two hole for their big bores, so if I could use those without having to mod anything, that would be my first choice.
