Team Associated Factory Team 12mm V2 2mm Shock Pistons are a great tuning option for 12mm off-road shocks. The 2mm thickness V2 shock pistons decrease damping and pack compared to the standard 2.5mm thickness kit pistons. Keeping the same 2-hole valving, the shorter thickness piston allows for faster fluid flow, and less pack (pack = increased rate of resistance) while the shock takes fast impacts from jumps and bumps. This results in a small shift, giving the car more traction and less pack, which racers can tune for an advantage in a wide range of conditions. Fits RC10B74.1, RC10B74.1D, RC10B6.2, RC10B6.2D, RC10T6.2, RC10SC6.2 (and older RC10B6 series models).

Some rule-of-thumb cases for using the 2mm thickness vs. 2.5mm thickness pistons:
  • Use optional 2mm thickness in cases where you want less pack, better bump handling, or slower responsiveness. Conditions to try:
    • Increase grip on low-traction dirt tracks
    • High-traction tracks with bumps or when you need a more forgiving overall feel
    • Running lightweight LCG batteries (lower overall car weight) to make the car less responsive and easier to drive
  • Use standard 2.5mm thickness pistons for more pack, higher responsiveness, and a more responsive feel.
    • Current Team Associated kits come with 2.5mm thickness 2-hole pistons, use these as a baseline for comparison
Pro Tip:  Adjust Team Associated shock oil +2.5wt up to +5wt thicker (ex:  30wt increase to 32.5wt OR 35wt).   You can run the 2mm thickness pistons with a thicker oil, and it will still handle good in bumps.
