I just use a small pair of needle-nose pliers. It's just the diff oil that's sticking it down.

Is anyone using the Fioroni Dual Action Ergal Shock Pistons? If so what do you think of them? I'm considering trying a set in my MBX5R.

c6 in my mbx5r is AWESOME. very linear and plenty of speed. this combo also won the open class at silver state. would recomend the c6/2045 combo pack. also you dont want to just "punch it" as it will almost act like a mini with a 8kv brushless in it lol.
