    shock diameter?

    hey i am thinking of doing a project with a slash 4x4 and like the thought of the variable dampening kit that the revos can use. so if anyone happened to know the diameter of the shock that i would need to use the piston i would appreciate it.

    -thanks

    13mm ID shock works well.


    Depending on the shock shaft diameter size you may need to enlarge the center hole in the piston for a good fit.

    thanks so much for the quick response and telling me about the shock shaft. and the pictures are amazing. in your opinion do the variable pistons give you more traction since they are supposed to let you rebound faster?

    Once you find the sweet spot with the oil wt and spring rate, you will see a noticable difference in both handling and traction.
