Exclamation billet piston?

does anyone know if the alpha or the go engines have a machined piston? or are they cast?

Do you care?

Yes, the specs of a piston are made through the proces but for me a piston is a piston, how it is made does not tell anything about the performance but maybe a tiny bit in lifespan. The main issue of a piston is to follow the sleeve.

i modify my own engines and the extra load on the engine could damage it but i am just wondering on how reliable they are since they are a cheaper engine.

All Pistons are machined. The Alpha seem to be very good quality, we have had no problems at all.
