I'm running very close to my Novak setup from last year with a few minor changes. It is on the website.

Hi all

I see quite a few people are using Tamiya 3 hole pistons what is the benefit of these over the standard ones?

Thanks
Tim

The Tamiya 3 hole pistons have less pack than the 1.3 mm Corally pistons. IMO, they make the car smoother.

Yes, the Tamiya piston is thinner than the Corally piston...

Looks like Corally is building a top notch team as a top pro will be making his debut at the Novak Race next week in a RDX. It will be great to see the mod team expanding.
