I guess I'm not understanding your question. The hole sizes are shown in order on that link. #1 at top smallest hole, #5 at bottom biggest hole.
They are 4 hole pistons.

The #55 pistons have a #55 drill hole size. Look at a drill chart and look at #55 drill dia and that's the hole size.

This link gives you all the hole sizes.
http://losi.com/Products/Features.aspx?ProdId=LOSB2909

#1 is the smallest #5 is the largest. These are all smaller then the 22 pistions. 22 pistons do fit on these shocks although most all of the holes sizes are too large for the SCTE. They did make the 1.3mm 2 hole machined pistons which are esentially 2 hole #55's we sometimes run as an option so you don't have to make them.

The 2.0 really is that big of a deal over the 1.0. And it is by far the best truck out. I have now seen handfuls of people that ran the losi, jumped on the bandwagon and bought teknos, just to run them for a bit and realize they liked their TLR better come right back.

The 2.0 comes with all the hopup goodies already in the box and it has a much better weight bias compared to the 1.0. The support you will find for the TLR cars is excellent both here and at almost any track you may venture to so finding help dialing in your truck is easy!

Yes, this was me. Was new to the sport with a totally decked out 1.0. Ran it for a month, then was talked into a Tekno by a Tekno driver who gave me no support at all. I was TOTALLY frustrated with the Tekno and could never get comfortable with it. Sold the Tekno and got the 2.0 a few months ago. I am well over a second per lap faster (and much more consistent) with the 2.0 mainly because it instills confidence to drive it hard. Plus I have a ton of support from local pros and Ryan and Casper.

I think you'll find that a lot of the tekno lovers are coming from ae or other brands besides losi. Some refuse to own a losi for whatever reason and don't know what a really well setup sc truck feels like. I also tried the tekno when it came out and after months of frustration trying to make it as good as my 1.0, I gave it to my son and bought a 2.0. I'm glad I did. I love this truck.
