Like I mentioned Built my YZ4 shocks using VRP pistons. On the packaging VRP lists theses Pistons compatible with AE 12mm shocks and TLR 22.

Oh! I didn't even see the above from Rkhess and joeymdz. Looks like the AE pistons are definetly a go.

yes assoc and vrp pistons both will work, using the 1.4/3's tapered on my bmax4 with 32.5 fr and 30 rear (it's cold here) and it was the best shock package ive used on it, can't wait to get my Yz$ on the track.

Is anyone else having an issue with using the battery in the offset right position, it seems nearly impossible to get the plug in the battery thats under the center brace???

The only way I've tried that works, is to plug it in first, then put it in the car.

It's a great car, but they should beat the guy who came up with the idea of the battery plate/holder LOL

Battery across the back works good for bumpy larger less technical tracks that fo not having tons of tight turns, short straits, etc.

No, I think the car handles better with Sanyo 1400 SCR packs. JMO.
