Default Vision Racing Products (VRP)

I wanted to start a thread over here in the electric section. Most of you have probably at least heard of the VRP pistons. They are quite unique in design, but offer much improved handling over stock pistons. I will be on here to answer any questions you may have about our products.

What pistons would you recommend for a Tekno SL 1:8 Buggy running on loose indoor dirt?

Are you working on anything for the EB48.3? With the stock 4X1.8 pistons I feel like the car has WAY too much pack and doesn't rebound fast enough. I slo-mo videoed the drop tests like you show on your youtube channel and the car only uses about 2/3 of it's travel when dropped from 24".

I just received a set for my D413 and B5M. Still have to install them, maybe this weekend. Are you supposed to go up or down in shock weight after installation?

Start with whatever oil you would normally run for starters. For the D413 with the 2x1.6/2x1.7 piston setup I seem to run 37.5/32.5 most of the time.

I've been running 40wt FR/35 wt RR in my D413 and I have tried both the 1.6/1.7mm setup as well as going to 1.5/1.6. It's very hot in SoCal right now so this seems to work well. I've gone as low as 35FR/30RR with 1.6/1.7 and it's also pretty solid. This is a great range to start with on the D413 IMHO.

Hope that helps!

Yes, We are working on something for the Tekno. Should have it released soon.

@13Maschine... on the D413 how did you like them and how did they feel?
Looking for some feedback. For my area I would probably get the 1.6/1.7s

For the most part, Start with the same oils you have been using. Unlike with some other aftermarket pistons, you do not have to go drastically up or down in shock oil.

Tekno 6x1.5 but also use the Fioroni 6 hole pistons on occasion too depending on layout / feel.

Do they still break? I know a few of your team drivers stopped using them because they didn't like DNFing.

I am using the game changers on both my buggy and Truggy (rc8be & t).

These pistons totally changed the way the vehicles landed big jumps, the recover very well so you can get on power right away.. this translated to .6-.7 a lap faster on average.

I'm not one to go on and on about a product, but finally an upgrade. You can really tell is an upgrade! !

I'm running them at 37.5 f and 32.5 r with the 1.3x6

If you are tired of flipping over after a flat land jump or upsetting the vehicle on a rythm section, get these to end the frustration!

There are a few tlr and associated team guys that run them... they are absolutely ballistic !!
