This is a pack of four optional Avid RC 2x1.7mm Machined Shock Pistons. These pistons can be used with Team Associated, Losi and Kyosho 12mm shocks. These Avid 12mm piston have two 1.7mm holes and have been precision machined to provide a tight-fit in the shock body with little blow-by.
Avid recommends that these pistons are used in the front of a 1/10 2wd or 4wd buggy, with 35wt oil in the front and 32.5wt oil in the rear on bumpy tracks when the car gets unsettled and is NOT bottoming out on jump landings.
