Default bigger/more piston holes = smaller/less holes with thinner shock oil?

bigger/more piston holes = smaller/less holes with thinner shock oil?

Wondering Do they have same effect on the performance?

Not exactly as you can never recreate to total area of the piston holes by changing the number and the size of the holes.

My opinion:
No.
Everyone has a different diving style and feel of what there setup should be on the track.

There are other factors like the amount of shock ''Pack'' needed in the shock for high jumping and landing.

The oil flow transitions from laminer to turbulent (damper will "pack") at a lower piston speed with smaller holes in the piston.

I believe the dampening of thicker oil and more holes changes less with temperature so will be more consistent as the day goes on. At TITC the Tamiya team were using 6 hole pistons, I asked Marc about it and he said he couldn't tell the difference between what they were running and 3 hole/500

thx everyone
CraigM: if the top driver can't feel the different then I should forget about this question and use 3 holes with 40wt. Nor getting myself trouble trying 4 holes 45wt or 50wt. I hate rebuild shocks.
