hello
can someone tell me why do you bore the holes in the shocks to 1.3 mm.
Original they have 0.9
Why do you use the 3 hole ons???
And you all use asso oil
In Germany asso is not good to buy.........
We have Robitronic at most or LRP.
who knows differentiated ???
Thanks
Marc

In the UK we drill them to 1.2mm due to the colder more humid climate but I still only use 2 hole pistons

hi Marc,

i have always done this in all my cars, i just like the feel that this combination gives. you can run a fairly heavy oil, with decent damping but because of the good size holes you shouldnt get any 'pack'.

you can replicate with any oil but it will just depend on how they rate there oil.

on www.3hobby.net there is some comparison data,

hope this helps.

Well done Darren! 2 wins from 2 starts in the championship is it? That Aussie sunshine must have been really good for you.

Thanks for the package you sent, it's mint! Helped me with building the new car!

Cheers,

Mike.

Hi everyone

I just built my G4S and i want to put the Lola body on it. Do i need the convertion bumper or can i use the stock foam bumper? I also noticed that the front shock tower hits the body and doesnt allow the body to come all the way down. Any suggestion? I drilled the spots that were marked on the body. Is that my problem?

Thanks

The conversion bumper places the body in the correct position and also has a shorter shock tower. The body can be fitted with the stock bumper but you hve to trim the foam quite a bit and you will need to cut down the front shock tower so only the lower shock tower holes remain to mount the shocks to.

Is the shock tower the part at the top of the picture? If yes it is carbon or plastic?

Thanks for your help.

Nitro Beast,

That piece is body post mount for the smaller body post. This is just the bumper kit and that is all that is needed to put on the VDS bodies. Everything else remains the same on your car.

Thanks. I guess i could fit the body on with some mods to what i have but the best bet is to spend the $15 and get the conversion set. Like that if i ever go to a normal cover i can swap everything out again.

Thanks again.
