Thanks

No offense, but this thread is for TCXX information, not Tamiya. I would suggest that your question would be better served in a thread dedicated to Tamiya chassis'.

He means the TCXX setup used at the Tamiya USA event on 22.09.2012

I believe he is talking about his setup for the TCXX from the Tamiya USA track.

Hey Luis,

Maybe more uptravel in the front. Running the 6 hole pistons tend to work better on bumpy tracks as well but the car does transistion a bit slower than running 3 hole pistons.

Let me make a correction little bit.
For bumpy tracks, it is more like how much dampening you have on your shocks. So either with 3hole, 6hole setup, you can pick/adjust the piston hole size along with the oil stiffness.

Also, if you feel the 6 hole setup transition slower than what 3 hole does, you might need to go up the size of the piston hole. 6 hole setup can be set as the same (or even faster) transition speed as other piston setups. But the beauty of using 6 hole setup is that the great amount of force that how much the oil (above the piston) push up the bladder before the oil get through the piston holes.

To achieve this, the shock oil needs to have certain viscosity and 6hole piston setup is ideal setup to let work with the oil.

I'd have thought that the main difference between 3 and 6 hole pistons would be that there would be more laminar flow with the 6 hole piston and more turbulent flow with the 3 hole, so for the same effective damping the shock would still work differently.

I never thought about the oil pushing the bladder differently.

Default great topic on shock pistons

So whats the ideal weight range of shock oil when using the following ?

2 hole
3 hole
4 hole
6 hole
