My new ones where 4 x 1.0 and I just used a 55 drill bit which is 1.3mm. You could get the 1.0 and use a 56 or 57 drill bil to get 1.2mm or 1.1mm if you wanted to. Mine are Durango tapered pistons. I know Great Planes has them in stock so Tower should have them as well. They also make 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 x 4

Sounds good to me. I did read about dirt getting stuck up in their but for testing purposes I will try the easy way and then when race season gets here I will take you advice and shave them off.

nismomike taking 2mm of droop out of the front did help a good amount. Got me even closer to where I wanted to be with such a little change. At least I know that change is just like my touring car would do. Thanks again. Did add a fan to my LRP Flow and put 4 little vent holes in the body and now the speedo dropped about 45 degrees in temp so now that and motor are runnin lower temps with plenty of rip.

Now I will put the alum steering rack on and aluminum servo horn and thats it for tonight.

Unfortunately the tapered pistons only come in 4/5/6 1mm holes, standard 6 hole ones come in 1.2/1.3 http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...tons&search=Go

The DIMEC20 is made from a stiffer material, less flex compared to the DIMEC.
