Absolute Hobbyz NJ
GS Hobby AR
Race Mugen/Classic City GA
River Rat RC FL

I expect a few more to place orders in the coming days and if they do I will post them here. I am very thankful that you guys are using them and liking them.
Motorman- see the post above. Race Mugen is a good place to call, Paul is easy to deal with. For o-rings, I don't have the part number yet, but they are either in the shipment or I will go to a hardware store and find them. Someone posted the size of the o-rings a few posts back.

I'll be at the Silver State race next week with Fioroni, BP Engines, and VOX Engines for anyone who wants to check them out. Might even have a couple sets of the pistons.

Were you able to get in, and ship some 16mm pistons to the retailers yet? GS Hobby in particular? Just wondering when retailers should expect to get them in. Thanks.

I had posted the shipment might arrive between Wednesday and Friday. It's now Tuesday night. The shipment is stuck in US customs, but it should be released tomorrow. It would have been released today, but once in a while I get the losing end of the customs agent draw, and today it was my turn.

First I had to translate, line by line, the descriptions of everything in the package from Italian to English (not a big deal), and then I had to translate a 3 page export declaration. All this because someone can't put two and two together....

Anyway, I will ship the same day I receive the shipment, which could be tomorrow. And yes, GS Hobby is getting some, along with the other retailers I posted a few days ago.

I just had someone measure there pistons holes for me,came in at 1.37mm.

Was thinking the same myself about different size piston holes and or more holes.

Im in the process of making my own for my 808 shocks, and are going to play around with different hole sizes, also going to have a play with larger or small hole that cuts into the o ring groove, try and fine tune them for the track conditions I run on.

Big holes facing up or down?

Up for more pack on landings and quicker rebound.
Down for opposite.

Thx ForwardBite.
What would you suggest for a bumpy and slippery track?

I think generally, most are using them w the big holes facing up.

However, If you're track is bumpy and slippery and "does not" have a lot of big jumps w hard landings, I think it's worth trying them w the holes down. Really a matter of trying different setups and determine what works for you and the track you're at.
