AVID Piston Tuning Guide and New Piston Options for 12mm Shocks

Mar 14 2013

AVID is proud to announce our Piston Tuning Guide. It is a 1 page reference for racers to print/save and keep in your toolbox, smart phone, setup notebook, or jammed inside your radio case. The goal of the piston table was to provide recommendation on what pistons/oil to use as a standard setup, and then to dictate which pistons you would change to for changes in grip, large jumps, and smooth or bumpy conditions. For example, a racer might change from the standard 2 x 1.6 hole setup to the 4 hole 1.5/1.1 setup when the track with larger jumps gets bumpy, or the car feels like it needs more grip.

Also new are 2 additional versions of the AV1030 series pistons, 2 hole 1.5mm and 2 hole 1.7mm flat.

Piston Features:

  • Fits 12mm shocks for Team Associated, TLR 22, and Kyosho (12mm bore, 3mm hole, 2.5mm thick).
  • Machined round with a tighter fit to bore of the shock body for less blow-by.
  • Each package includes 4 pistons inside of a Doodad container printed with AVID logo.
