I have tried the 5 hole pistons and the nitro shock setup with the 8 hole pistons back to back and find that for the outdoor track I was at the 8 hole shock setup (Adam Drake's setup) worked best. The buggy handled the bumps better and jumped better. There seemed to be a little too much "pack" with the 5 hole pistons on the outdoor track I was at.

I even tried the silver rear spring vs. the green rear springs and definitely the green rear springs suit the ebuggy.

I changed the diff setup to 5k-10k-2k and im pretty satisfied with that.
Quite good acceleration with good on- and off-power steering.
I will try 7k in center diff to make it a bit calmer on acceleration.

The problem i have is the suspension. The car tends to become quite nervous
during the rougher track sections even on straits, and it gets a bit "bitchy" or
instable during landing after mid to big jumps.

As i understood the current kit comes more or less with a indoor type of setup regarding pistons and oils.
I took a look on the outdoor standard setup from Adam Drake posted on TLR HP.
He uses 8 hole 1,3 mm in the front and "splits" at the rear.
I ordered these pistons by the way.

#1 Do you guys think the new pistons + the oils will solve my problems mentioned above.

#2 How does a "split" piston look like ? is it with conical holes or different diameter on one piston ?

Thanks for your help
