Default Shock Pistons

Hey guys,

Does anyone know what the sizes of the holes are for the shock pistons in the Phantom Evo compared to the standard V One R pistons? I'm using the phantom springs and would like to match the piston valving, can the standard be drilled out/is it smaller?

In general over all the makes I would say probably 2 use the one-way, 7 use standard diffs and 1 use solid axle.

Just a guess.

In the serious cars I would have thought;

5-one-way
4-std Diff
1-solid

Well I have to say that it has been quite a while since I have run a front differential. All my active vehicles utilize a front oneway. I think the only possible execption would be the RC10L2 which is onty rear wheel drive, so basically the inherent benefits of a one way are there.

Hmmm.....I would venture to guess, here in So Cal it would be:

8-one-way
2-std diff
0-solid

I do not believe I have heard of anyone here using a solid front except in electric.

Default Shock Assemblys

Does anyone know if there is a difference between the Fantom Shocks VS the Shocks that come with the RR? I have seen pictures of the housings on the Fantom and they look very similar. Just wondering if they are one in the same.

I maybe guessing, but hear go's

The shocks are the same except the valves and springs, but if I am wrong please tell me

I have not heard if they but some sort of adjustable dampening feature like serpent has in theirs

What I was really curious about is that the Shock kits for the Fantom are cheaper than the V One R's. I think Tower has the shock kits for like $4.00 per pair more than the Fantom. A 1/10 scale part that is (I think) virtually the same, but is more expensive than its 1/8 scale counterpart.... Go figure....

it's called supply and demand,theres more demand for 1/10 sale these days so the jack the price up to screw the average joe.
Does any body have any thought on keeping a centax set right, the one i have keeps tighting up on me. nothing like running and all of a sudden having the motor go to max rpm on you, let that happen a few times and you will lunch a rod, not good for the old wallet.

So does anyone have experience with these Serpent adjustable shocks? Are they effective? Is this a transplant option?

V-One-R with Mugen rear end and Serpent shocks?

They are effective in the sense that you can adjust and fine tune the shocks without changing and resorting to different shock oils. That is within a certain extent. You adjust by turning / clicking the shocks to 1, 2, 3 or 4 holes.
