Cush ran the car with 6 holes - IMO it really needs to have 2-3 holes closed off and the oil lightened accordingly. The car jumped well, handled great, but chassis slapped hard off of even small jumps. We had 35ae front and 30losi rear. Maybe heavier oil would help, but ultimately I think the solution is to close off some holes or drill your own using the supplied blanks.

Nope, the 6 hole pistons don't give enough pack IMO. Just glue two opposing holes shut and be done with it. I'm running 4 hole 1.3's in front with 30wt and 4 hole 1.2's in the rear with 20wt.

Why not run 1.2s up front as well?

Cougar pistons might fit... But don't think that anybody elses pistons would yield any kind of advantage. The stock ones are great, and they supply blanks so you can drill your own as well.

Here is a question for you guys... if gluing your holes closed, why do you need to glue opposite sides in even numbers? could you close up 1 for a 5 hole piston? how about two next to eachother? What affect would we see?

You could close one hole, even 2 holes next to each other. The theory on two next to each other instead of opposing is the piston may bind. Two closed holes on opposite sides will be "even" and not bind the piston during travel.

Did you put the washers in? Before and after the spring? If so, try adding another washer.

Are you sure its not your diff slipping?

No reason really, but this way I "saved" a set of 6 hole pistons in both 1.2 and 1.3 in case I wanted to go back to them

Yes washers there. Diff doesn't slip, the slipper gives before that.
