My downloaded manual from PetitRC has TYs Silver Dollar Roar Nats on pg36. If you go thru manual as if you were building the kit, it does list out the stock info for building it.

the guys here in ohio are doing really well with these pistons, you guys should give them a try. You won't be dissapointed, the 2 guys who own the company have been racing for like 30 years each and this is the first product they had to make sure everyone could have.

are these ackermans designed to take the slop out? I just finished building my d413 and holy slop! Pretty disappointed with how soft the plastics are and the over all slop of the vehicle, over all the kit seems pretty great but the plastics, slop, and instructions are the weaknesses so far. Now all of that will be null and void if it performs well but thats just my initial feedback.

yes they are dialed, you can see the difference in how fast the car settles down and how quickly it reacts, you get better turn in and the car doesn't scrub as much speed coming off of big jumps. Also running through rough sections is visably faster with these pistons. I am not sponsered by them, I have just used them and seen the difference in my lap times.

Use whatever piston size you normally would with the same shock oil and you will see and improvement. I have seen these run for over 10 races and no rebuild has been needed yet. Biggest killer is if you cut a valve when taking off an eclip.

You guys should really try them, they are fully supporting the d413

Also the fit and finish and the smoothness of these even over other companies machined pistons is notable, they have alot less variation in size from one piston to the next.

the dots are for ackermann adjustment. if you have the dot facing forward it pushes the ballstud further forward, giving you less ackermann and vice versa. similarly you can also use shims. i designed it this way in case if you want to run the ballstud far forward you don't have to use huge stack of shims and possibly run out of thread engagement.

The rack bushing are too long which is producing most of the steering play. Most of it can be removed by dremeling the bushing flush (red area) to the rack (yellow area).

I was curious too with the slop, but the car handles amazing IMO and have been running for about 4wks.
