VRP Gamechanger SOAR 998 TD1R.2 Shock Piston Set (2) (6x1.3mm) [VRP6H1.3GCSRLLP]
*This is for 1 pair of pistons, you must order 2 pairs for a full set of 4 pistons.
*We recommend using the 6x1.3 for front shocks and drilling the rears out to 3x1.4/3x1.5. To further fine tune, we recommend replacing the flaps in the front pistons to the hard flaps for slower rebound on blue groove tracks.
This is the new VRP 6 Hole 1.3 Low-Low Pack Game Changer for the SOAR TD1R.2. This is another
option in the growing line of Gamechanger Pistons. It is just like our current 6 Hole Gamechanger,
but has less pack to help absorb the bumps and imperfections in the track surface better. But, it also
maintains the high speed packing just like our other Gamechanger Pistons.
The Patent Pending CFV (Compression Flex Valve) allows the Piston to have Slow Shaft Speed
and High Shaft Speed Compression.
Slow Shaft Speed Compression: At neutral, it is as soft as any shock with a normal set of
comparable pistons. On the bench, you will find the suspension is subtle. Its important that
this stays in the range of what we run now, it is what makes the suspension soak up bumps and
give forward grip as well as a responsive feel at the wheel. So I made the ‘Low Shaft Speed’
Compression very similar to what you know.
High Shaft Speed Compression: At High Shaft Speeds like landing a large jump, the CFV will flex
and partialy cover some of the flow holes and provide additional damping to keep the chassis off
the ground. It flexes different amounts depending on the impact and the ‘shaft speed’, so it will
respond accordingly. If for example you were to land a smaller jump, the CFV will flex less and
provide the correct amount of damping at the time needed. Once the shaft slows down, the valve
immediately returns to Slow Shaft Speed Compression, and the damping becomes softer.
Carbon Fiber Compression Flex Valve: Engineered with 20 years of composite experience, the actual
Carbon Fiber is made in house at the VRP facility in Houston. It is unique. From the Carbon itself to
the Resin its made with, the properties are designed and taylored for the purpose. They are similar
to a reed valve for a musical instrument and care should be taken when handling them. Treated
properly, they should last the lifetime of the vehicle.
New Era of Performance: You will never have a buggy land, respond, settle, and be ready for throttle
quicker than the Gamechanger Piston. Many jumps and landings become a fluid motion with no
chassis scrub or momentum loss. The pistons also make the car more true off the face of every jump
because it does not dig in. You will find it easier to manage jumps both taking off and landing like
never before. This makes your consistency increase and ultimately your racing success. Where the
chassis dug in before and you needed turn marshaled, it won’t and you will continue on.......
It's a GameChanger!
