I found with the Game Changers in the heavy pack version that my car was a little too stiff overall but dropping just 2 1/2 wt in the oil made all the difference and now I feel like the new VRP pistons are really coming around on my car. Amazing that just that little drop in weight made the car respond that much better to the new VRP pistons.

I have an 8ight-e 4.0 and was told to choose pack depending on track conditions. I run on a smooth track and selected 6 hole per the Gamechanger Pistons Tuning guide, however you are saying the 8 hole pistons are generally better for Losi cars.

For the TLR cars, guys around here are running 5 hole if track is smooth and 8 hole if it's rough. Not sure what size holes though.

Yes, Its just a track preference. Everyone likes something a little different.

Received my Game Changer pistons for the Agama A215e last night and worked on installing them. First thanks for the quick shipping and the pistons look great.

The install went very easy and no issues at all with them, the center mount hole was perfect snug fit onto the shock shaft and install the valves and carbon X plate was nice and smooth.

Just from doing a drop test of the buggy it definitely looks like these will work awesome, I can't wait to hit the track and actually get some drive time on them.

That track is close to what I raced on last Sunday. Bone dry with at least one bigger sized jump and they during race day progressively gets worse as the day goes on. The 2nd track I go is just a lot bigger than yours and very fast and generally not as rough as the smaller track but has a massive jump in the center that you need at least 3/4 throttle to make. It is a truly large jump.

For the rougher tracks, it just depends on what car your running. Most like 8 hole xv2 or 8 hole low pack on loose/rough tracks.

I would think that you could probably use the A215 pistons since they are 17mm
