Finally, dual-stage suspension for 1/8 racing. MAD Racing, a French RC racing company, has developed these special pistons.

By configuring the piston one way, the compression is harder than the rebound. Switch the piston, and the compression is softer, and the rebound is harder. These pistons really shine in rhythm and whoops parts of the track. The pistons make the shocks return to full extension faster, making your suspension more reactive and keeping your wheels on the ground longer for better traction.

These pistons have 1.55mm holes, and are made to fit Jammin' Big Bore shocks on the X1-CR or X1-CRT.

This set includes 2 pistons, with all necessary parts and instructions.


Our Price: $19.99
BUT Item is currently out of Stock.

you should really invest in a pair. i'm sure they can ship overseas for a price. they are worth every bit, and then some.

so, i had a pretty good day of racing today. my new stiff setup for my track has my buggy hooked, lots 'o traction and more steering with a different diff oil setup. however, my day was cut short by a glitching steering servo. i've had it for a year and no problems, so i guess it finally crapped out. it was probably underpowered for the job, a hitec 5625. .14 seconds at 140oz of torque. not to mention my throttle servo (which is still fine, but underpowered) is .15 at 95oz. i'm going to snag the servos from my truggy and go ahead a do a full on servo change. my options for steering are a hitec 5945 (.13 at 180) or a hitec 5645 (.18 at 165). i'll probably use the 5945 for the steering cause it's faster, but do you think the 5645 is too slow for throttle if i'm used to .15 seconds instead of .18? will i notice a difference in speed? thanks for any help

5945=180oz is same as my throttle. high speed some more. my steering around 200oz. like 13kg. u wont feel the diffrence b/ween .15 & .18 in throttle. trust me. my advice go for very high torque for the steering. buggy is really demanding in term of steering. especially when landing on awkward left/right side. u need full metal or the hybrid one.
so whats the diff setup?

thanks JFC, always a help. i believe that's probably what happened to my servo, because everytime i landed a jump, the servo locked up and wouldn't move for about 3 seconds, then it went back to normal. land another jump, it glitches.

it's no secret. 5k/7k/2k. i bumped up on the front oil and turning is much more agressive.

Man im Chilean (not Mexican) so i wasnt sure about this, but asked couple of mexican friends and they said that USA people dont need special VISA to visit Mexico.

Just need your passport and a special permission/authorization you get on the airport the same day you fly. If you cross the border by car, this document you get on the police post just on the frontier.

Any other doubt ?, cya !!
