12mm Associated V2 1/10 Tapered "X V2" Shock Piston (2) (1.6mm x 2 Hole) by VRP
Updated "X V2" Pistons
25% Stronger, Updated Washers & Adjustable with Optional Hard Valve (VRP1206).
This is a pack of two VRP 12mm "X V2" Tapered Shock Pistons, intended for use with Team Associated 1/10 Scale Off-Road Vehicles equipped with V2 shock shafts (where the piston is attached to the shock shaft with a screw; not an e-clip). "X" pistons are designed to increase the rebound of the shock, without any compression changes, to keep your tires on the surface and in traction.
To achieve this, "X" shocks are designed with a Transition Valve that opens during rebound, but remains closed during compression. As the shock absorbs a force, compression remains the same, but during rebound, additional oil passed through the valve making it quicker.
The pistons come complete with the Transition Valve pre-installed. The Rebound Booster hole has been precision drilled to the exact size testing found to be the best 'all around' setting. This yields excellent results that are proven on a variety of track surfaces. From rough, blown out tracks, to smooth, indoor clay, the VRP Piston makes a positive difference and gives you a big advantage over the competition.
NOTE: These fit the Associated V2 Shock Shafts only.
