Default TIX Race Developments. Custom Shock Pistons

Here is a pic of my TIX Race Developments Pistons



They are available for sale at www.tixracedevelopments.com in kits with drill bits to customize them to your liking. Or as pistons only for those that already have a kit.

With so many people looking for the right mix of piston / oil for their shocks, I have decided to start selling my blank pistons to help find that balance your looking for.

They have a 1mm leading edge for minimal resistance against the shock body, and are tapered for optimal flow.

They are currently available for the Kyosho MP9. AE RC8 line. Xray XB9, 808 and XT8. Serpent Cobra 811 line. Losi 8ight line and Mugen MBX6 line of buggies and truggies.

All lines are currently available and ready for shipping

$40AUD shipping it should have been for the pack of 12 pistons and drill.

I'll check what I've put in the cart price.
I can do smaller packs but the problem is shipping won't change

It was 10 for shipping the total came out to just under $60 usd. Don't get me wrong the quality looks fantastic and I'm sure they are a great fit, just too much for me.

What material are they made from? Are the piston hole position markings stamped into the piston skirt?

The pistons are made from delrin.

They have no markings. The guys testing them have been clamping a stock piston to the TIXRD piston using an old pinch bolt or shock shaft as a guide to where to drill the holes.

The best method is to drill the smallest hole first then work up to the size you want to get the cleanest hole
