Default Fioroni Duel Action Pistons

With all the new pistons I was wondering if anyone has tried these yet?

It seems that most companies now are just putting a taper and drilling two diffrent size holes. But the concept of the oring expanding with oil flow makes since to me but I am wondering how it truley works.

They are amazing! Two of my friends have them in their buggies and the design is simply perfect. Practically no chassis slap at all and you can get on the gas instantly. Price is steep but how much would you pay to gain 1-2 seconds a lap? I've been hounding Garren to get Fioroni to make them in 17mm for my Agama but after seeing them in action a few times I'm actually thinking of running AE shocks on my Agama just so I can use these pistons.

Some of us are already running 15mm Mugen shocks, James.

Do they make these for the Xray XB808 11 shocks?

If so does anyone know the part no?

I actually reduced mine from 42.5 front to 30 and 35 to 25 Rear. Using my original oil the feel seems too stiff. This is on the RC 8.2. Night and day difference in Handling and really helps in preventing chassis slaps. I am glad I purchased one. I do feel i will try 35 all around cause I am still looking for something. Do keep your oil clean cause if not it will cause premature wear on those orings. Great Product. I will test it head to head with the CSI ones. But I Think this is the winner cause you only need one set and just adjust the oil to suit your driving style.

None for Xray. I use my AE shocks for my 808.
