Does anybody know if the Kyosho 12mm shock pistons are a good fit in AE 12mm big bores? I am looking to make an order all at one place, and the Schelle, Avid, and AE 4x1.3 shock pistons are not available.

Got:
Aluminum Steering rack
Front Hinge Pin Holder
Aluminum hubs
Schelle Slipper
Hard Arms and Spindles and Tower
Brass Bushings
Aluminum Arm Mounts (C and D)

Not worried much about weight, rather have it around 1550 anyways.

Has anyone had luck luck with the x rings. I bought and put some in all my cars because well all the the fast guys do it. Lol. But they seem to leak a lot. I've had multiple shocks leak and have to keep rebuilding them. I used green slime but still leak any tips to keep them sealed?

Hello , I had x ring for a while. They didn't leak at all until I rebuild the shocks and unfortunately "pinched" two of them when sealing the shocks back together. They are incredibly fragile to shearing. Front ones are still good, no leaks. Although the biggest improvement by far to my shocks was to use a bladder. Sometimes the leak people get with emulsion type shock is due to the fact that is not enough air in them.

I didn't bother to replace the x rings at the back for new ones at the moment.

6 months on my X rings without a drip of green slime. I am changing oil weekly, sometimes twice a weak depending on what track I attend.

I am going to assume you're building them incorrectly.

I haven't replaced shock seals for a couple seasons, but how could they be built incorrectly? The manual has the steps lined out pretty good from what I remember.

EDIT: Just had a look at the manual online. The only thing I could imagine is the X-rings are sticky and getting caught on the inside of the shock body and wrinkling or something when inserting them. Weird to hear about X-rings leaking.

I just remembered, the big bore shocks sometimes needed to be shimmed. Like a .10" shim to put a little more squeeze on the seals so they squish against the shock shaft a little more.
