    What part are you calling a piston??

    As far as I know, all the pistons that the 16th platform have are black... and the same size; except for possibly the holes in them that let the shock oil flow.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    The summint piston is a red two hole piston.
    My reason for the question is the shock bodies (after market) are 15mm bigger in bore size then the stock piston
    The bodies r for a revo or slash.

    So i was not sure if the manufacter cut them wrong or the bore size is different between the two shocks
    the bore in stock summit is 7.70mm piston is 7.60mm
    The after market bore was 7.95mm so blow by is extream

    If anyone could get me a mesurment for the black pistons it would help me getting to the bottom of this
    what i will call confusing situation

    Why don't you want to mention the brand??
    There are very few that are banned and as far as I know, the banned brands do not make shocks for this platform.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    HR aluminum shock bodies. I have them and I will say by no means is the red summit piston a perfect fit. I wish I had a way to measure them for you.
