it's certainly not a requirement, all I was saying is that they aren't limited to foam tires and carpet racing

Yeppers!

Billy is supposed to be receiving a shipment today. Had to buy them back from distributors.

Do you have a recommended insert for SW?

Hi Guys
On Josh newman's set up, and some others, I have seen that on their shock data they say for eg. piston size 56 drilled, what does the drilled bit mean?

i'm guessing he drilled the holes bigger.. I am curious to know what size bit he used..


I find it interesting that he used a 'relatively' soft setup..

when someone talks about using a "drilled" piston ... what it means is that they have taken a piston with small holes (usually a 60) and taken whatever drill size they mention and used that to drill out the holes in the piston to that size...

For example... if someone said they ran a "drilled 56" that means that all three holes were drilled out using a #56 drill bit...

Things can get a little more complicated ... you might see someone run something like a "drilled 557" or something or other...that means two of the holes are drilled out using a #55 bit and one hole using a #57...

Why drill out the pistons? There are two main reasons:

1.) the hole you get from a drill bit can be a lot more consistant than a molded hole...sometimes molds don't line up...stuff builds up in the molds...etc... if you drill out your pistons your hole size will always be the same...

2.) Because of the molding process, a molded hole in a piston will tend to be a tiny bit bigger than a hole that is drilled in the piston... this means a "drilled 56" will have slightly smaller holes in it than a "molded 56" .... this can be a nice tuning aid ...sometimes you want just a little bit more dampening than a standard piston and that's when a drilled piston might be worthwhile in trying

Hope this all helps clear things up instead of confusing you all even more
