Default Team GRID performance pistons for 1/8 off-road shocks

Hello 1/8 off-road racers!

Get ready for our new pistons for 1/8 off-road shocks. Also just in time for the 1/8 off-road season.

What we can tell you now is one of great features of these pistons is to eliminate chassis slap and yet tunable for all track conditions.

Pics will be coming in a few weeks.

Your input is welcome.

Do your posting here.

Got several requests for Agama. I guess the answer is YES, if the Agama owners want pistons for the Agama shocks.

At this point, we will produce piston for any brand provided it sells.

Pics? Are these pistons just cut right, or do they do have some kind of valve or friction ring like the Fioroni's (Isn't that a name brand of spagetti?).

The Xray XB9 and AE rc8 pistons are the same size (I think, my XB9 is in the mail) so those are a bit of a no brainer.

We have several prototypes, but the valving version gave us the most consistent results in varying conditions.

Also the valving version has "zero" stiction regardless of temperature and oil used.

Because every track condition is different, it is better to have shocks that are tunable.

Well, I'm in, when they're available for the Xray XB9.

I've had excellent luck with the 1/10th scale RPM pistons for my AE Sc10 and B4. They just open up during rebound. Great for when I run softer springs.

I'm looking forward to try something similar in 1/8th scale.

Sure, if owners with O'Donnell want, we will produce it.

Let's see what these 16mm pistons look like!

MIP looks to have some good ones going w/ shimmed valves and lots of adjustability, but so far only for 10mm applications (boo).

Get your product out asap! There is a good market for these if they work correctly, just look at the traffic on the CSI and Fioroni piston threads.

I believe MP9, XB9, AE 8.2 HN X3 are all 16MM. I know this because each of this kits owners have the fioroni 16MM installed in their shock. I dont know the difference though, It just fits.
