IMO.. Just buy a cheap drill press from harbor freight and do you're own....aftermarket companies like RC shock just follow what the team guys do (at one race) and just gouge the consumer. By the time you buy a press with the cost of expensive vales. You can get blanks and stay ahead of the game on set ups at a less expensive cost.

pretty obvious at this point that you have some bone to pick with marcus. you put him on blast for helping customers with his products, but then you feel it's ok to slam him (after he's stayed out of this thread).

rcshox makes very good products that many racers are happy with and have had success with. yes, he makes aftermarket parts for rc's. yes, he expects to make money with his business. you don't like his products? don't use them. you say marcus "gouges" his customers, but a quick look shows that he charges $13 for a set of 4 pistons. the other company that was mentioned in this thread (visionracingproducts) charges $18. yet you call marcus out for "gouging"

+1 I am loving the rcshox pistons. I let anyone that wants to drive my car and everyone loves the way it jumps, lands and handles the bumps. I added 100 grams with the avid chassis and it didnt slow down those 2 stage pistons at all.

I like the RCSHOX pistons as well. I am running 2x1.6 front (Losi 35W oil/HB red springs) and 2x1.7 rear (Losi 30W oil/HB gold springs). 10K front/60K center/5K rear for the diffs. And the rest is pretty much Ty's Reedy Race setup. D413 has been great for me like this so far.

do you mean in between the arm blocks? if that's the case just loosen the screws and maybe pull on the arm a bit and re tighten, also do not tighten the hinge pin nut all the way, or else it will break first run

No right or wrong way on esc placement, Most run ESC up front, but lead HB engineer runs his out back.
