Need recommendation for Tekno NT48.3. Medium grip track. Not too rough with some big jumps. From what I have read it seems LP versions are recommended. Was researching and was going to order 8 hole 1.3 LP. However discovered it says on the site to use HB D815 Bellow Baldders? Are the stock Tekno shock bladders not good with these pistons?

Could you measure the stock piston's diameter and center hole diameter?qqq

I ran the v3 pistons last weekend at Thunder Alley in So. Cal. and they were really good! HB v2 front - 5hole 1.5 (37.5w) Rear- 5hole 1.6 (30w) My car handled good, as the track was a new layout and pretty smooth. As the day wore on, it got rutted but the car stayed consistent through out the day.

I usually go bigger holes on low traction and if in doubt, always use the stock piston sizes for reference and start fm there.

Hi, the best start off point would be to try the piston size of yr stock pistons and go from there.
Variables like track conditions, types of track, buggy weight etc play a part as well. So there's no thing like a all-round.
Thanks.

Default 6 hole

Hi guys, I bought these pistons for my mugen mbx8
VRP6H1.35/1.45V3MG | VRP Pistons XV3 6 Hole 1.35/1.45mm Splits
VRP6H1.35/1.50V3MG | VRP Pistons XV3 6 Hole 1.35/1.50mm
I would like to know what silicone they recommend for these pistons. in our circuit appears the blue grove and has areas of high traction and low traction. Thanks.

What wt oils were you using on yr stock pistons? If yr stock ones were of similar hole sizes then start by using the oils u used previously. Regions fm 33.5-40wt or 400-500cst is what I go with as a start
