Can't speak for Kevin, but I would bet they are drilled kyosho blanks. It is what most of the drivers are doing for pistons if they are not the standard 5 hole listed.

You can run Losi 55s but I ran blank Kyosho drilled to 55. We now have predrilled pistons in the 4x1.3 and also 3x1.4 and 2x1.6 which provide more initial pack.

I've run both kinds and the 4x1.3s are the best all around for my track which is inconsistent. If you have a track with a lot of grip or pretty big jumps the other holes may help versus having to go up in oil.

I run at a track that has low traction with lots of bumps what do you think would work? Also when are these pistons coming out for the general public

Kyosho America has the new pistons available and I'm sure their distributors will as well.

Ran my mid motor today in stock class. I liked it a lot, but still curious how it would be in rear motor. Thinking of converting it this weekend.

I just finished my RB6 tonight too. This was my first Kyosho car and Ive gotta say this kit is pretty darn impressive. I am really excited to go run this thing.
Now I just need to paint up a body and mount up some tires.
I got the insipiration for the electronics layout from David Ronnefolk's car that I saw on Petit.

James just drive mine, kyles or even paulos to get an idea. Paulos will be the worse one but if it fits your driving style better then yours then change to rear motor. Oh and mount both front tires the same direction.

I just bought the v2 0 aluminum rear hubs. Is everyone using the bigger option bearing or the smaller one?

Run the bigger bearings. They typically last longer and take more abuse from hits on the side wall

Smaller will work but they will eventually blow out. The amount of load that is transferred to the bearing on the metal hubs is a lot. I'd only run the small ones in stock where rolling resistance is more of a concern than durability.
