Wow...watched some videos of the Game Changer pistons. You've definitely raised the bar! Makes me want to put 1/8 scale buggy shocks on my son's 2WD SCT so we could move up from the pistons we're currently using. Now to start searching for a front spring light enough to work.....

Even though the pistons you have are meant for the V2 shaft, You should be ok. If you run into any problems, Pm me on here and I'll take care of it for you.

The main differences between medium and high pack is basically how they pack . The high pack are great for ebuggy, where most ebuggies weight a bit more than a nitro. Some use high pack in the front and medium pack rear on ebuggy, since the rear doesn't need to generally pack as much as the front does.

We will be working on a 1/10 GameChanger later this year as 1/10 indoor season approaches!

Hmmm... I think when I ordered mine for the Ebuggy, I ordered the 8x1.3/1.5 MP style, plus running a smaller 4s (4500 & 5600)
Hopefully that will still work out, unless I need to go heavier oils.

For what it's worth, my D413 ones went together great! I do like the v2 shaft better for installation

Running the lighter batteries, you will be fine. Its the people who run the large 6000mah+ that have the main weight issues. With the batteries you run, You will be fine with the 8 hole medium pack.

Great to hear! Glad that they went together good for ya! If the pistons you put in your B5 give you any issues, Just let me know.

One suggestion, my $.02, I think it would beneficial if you had some type of FAQ explaining that the XV2's are actually for V2 shafts. Also maybe explaining the difference between v1 and v2 shafts and to check your shafts before ordering. Might help some noobs like me from ordering the wrong pistons. I would imagine I am not the only one who has ever ordered the wrong pistons.

It just depends on what kind of surface you are running on. Typically, the 6 Hole will be better suited for smoother surfaces, and the 8 Hole will be better for rougher surfaces.

The losi cars seem to like the 8 Hole pistons the best.

I agree. I'll try to get a chart made up that shows which pistons fit which shafts, since the B5M is one of the main ones that's confusing. lol
