So far I've found that the 6x1.2 stock pistons are the most consistent

I'm running 6x1.2 pistons front and 6x1.1 pistons rear and associated 37.5 front and 25 rear. Car handles brilliant on high grip astro but I noticed some running piston holes smaller on rear than front. Why is that?

Looking great A.J.

For those who reside in Europe, I came up with some front-towers, 4MM for the XB4. There are plenty in stock.

I made some adjustments to unload the shocktower from pressure from the bulkhead. Price is €30.-. Picture can be seen at: http://blog.rccss.nl/2013/05/xb4-4mm...sneak-preview/.

It's written in Dutch, so for those who don't understand Dutch ( ), there is some google translate for you: http://translate.google.com/translat...iew%2F&act=url
