I'm going to try 1.5 & 1.6 but I don't think I'll get any better setup than I have now.
Good look ordering them now

37.5 AE front & 32.5 rear. Stock springs and 20mm ride height. Copper sway bars front and rear.

What impressed me was, and I'm sure there's lots out there that are into 1/8 also, I installed 5 hole X 1.5 VRP pistons in my E-Buggy and the results were even more dramatic.

So why do we spend money to buy pistons that accelerate rebound .... But so many build their shocks dead or with no rebound ?

Good question but I think in 1/10th where we use emulsion shocks the more rebound you have the more oil/air is in the shock therefore the stiffer/more pack it is going to be/have. Where having extra holes open up on rebound allows for softer/faster rebound while not having as much oil/air in the shock.

But that is just my thinking I could be wrong...

The way I look at it, there's two ways to increase rebound. You can run bladders and have lots of pressure in the shock so the shock rebounds quickly, but they don't compress as quick.

Or you can can relieve the pressure of the oil when rebounding so they also rebound quicker. This process makes for a smoother action in both directions.

Hope this kinda makes sense.

Essentially two different things. Rebound when building shocks is largely a spring action. Since it builds pressure in the shock it tends to lead to leaking and then is inconsistent.

Piston rebound is damping.

I also have the VRP pistons in my D413. I just bought a set of RC SHox for my Kyosho but I'm not sure if I like them. The white pistons have a lot of bur's and extra material. Just doesn't look very clean. How was your set when you go them? Did you have to clean them up?

I've also installed the Exotek bushings and the steering rack. I also went to the Kyosho ball cups where I could. I don't have an offset ball cup replacement for the lunsford ball studs. ideas?

Thanks!
