Doug, yes these will work on all XRAY cars, as they all share the same drive shafts.

Christian, do you have any dcjs that will work on a yokomo?

Default 6 Hole Pistons and other updates.

So, I have been testing some 6 hole pistons lately. And so far I really like them

I have been testing a 6x1.2 hole piston with 900cst oil in them with some really good results. What I have noticed is a car that is much more calm and switches directions quicker than with a 3 hole piston. My typical piston set-up is 3x1.1 with 450CST. When comparing back to back, lap times were similar, however the 6 hole piston rolled in a more controlled manner and was better in chicanes when switching directions. The result was a much easier to drive car that seems smoother and soaks up bumps better. The true test will be this weekend at our other track which has a high speed section that is very bumpy. Here, I have been running a 3x1.1 tapered piston to soak up the bumps.

We have liked them so much in testing, that we do think it is a valuable tuning aid so we are producing a variety of different hole patterns.

We are going to release:
6x1.1 (611)
6x1.2 (612)
6x1.3 (613)

I still have not had a chance to test the 1.3 hole, which I am dying to since this is the hole pattern HARA ran in his TCXX at the worlds with 2000cst in the shocks. I will report sometime later this week once I get to test them.

The servo mounts will arrive next week in like 7-10 days. We had a problem with the production, so we had to have them re-made.

We also will be posting our new 17.0 lb springs this week (orange), these are slightly stiffer than the purples and are great on high grip asphalt tracks. We also have another spring coming in next week which should be softer than the purple.

You can use TC6 DCJ's with a TC6 spool with our spool cups or an AE slipper spool.

Seeing as to that you run carpet, I would recommend getting an AE slipper spool and running our DCJ's. This will save blades and DCJ's.

The other option is the Spec R DCJ's for the Yokomo. I will have those in stock maybe by the end of the week?

Ill go with the spec r v2s from you solely so I don't have to switch a bunch of other parts. Any chance you could measure your pistons so I can see if they will work in my yoko. All I need is diameter and thickness where they mount on the shaft. I've been running 3x1.0 that I drilled to 3x1.1 but I would love a piston machined to that size and the 6 hole pistons are also intriguing.

Macki, no, they are too small in diameter. Yoke pistons are 10.15mm in diameter if I recall correctly. However, our plan is to make them for Yokomo (10.15mm) and Tamiya/HB/Top (9.88mm)

Please keep me posted. I have a spare set of yokomo pistons if they will help you out.

Any chance they will fit the Serpent shocks or making some to fit?

FYI the 2K6 hole combo works very well on carpet.

There is not enough demand for the Serpent car to justify them right now, but if you measure them out for me, I will see what I can do.

I am having problems with the front CV blades breaking all the time....and I don't hit very many things at all. Sometimes they just spin out inside the hubs without me even hitting anything. What is the cheapest/best fix for this?

I am using the 6.1 with a gear diff in the rear and a spool in the front. The front blades are breaking. If I increase the negative camber in the front (making the blades go deeper into the slots then it helps a little). But the blades are right at the edge of the hub slots and are breaking/popping out.

Yes, but which spool are you using? Which car? You quoted a Serpent post.

If you are using the AE TC6.1 spool with the plastic spool cups, try using our spool cups. They increase blade life and reduce breakage tremendously. They also are more resistant when the blade does happen to break.

If you are already using our spool cups and you are still having trouble, get a TC6 slipper spool. These really increase and save the life of blades even further. The downside is a bit of extra weight and slightly less on power steering.

Yea I am using the AE TC6.1 spool. Sorry, I did not mean to quote the serpent post. How much do your spool cups cost and how many to a pack? And where can I get them?
