    Just been playing around with some new pistons and tekno springs. The truck feels pretty pooh tbh.

    Just wondering what's the standard size holes? There's 6 and I got a feeling they may be 1.6mm...

    Anyone know?

    I just remembered this post from a shock upgrade thread in the Kraton Forum. The part number for the pistons on the Kraton and Outcast are the same. Take a look at post #48 and #49. The holes in the stock Kraton Pistons are 1.4mm in diameter. Not sure where we found that information originally, but here it is.

    @dpricenator Thanks man!..

    The pistons i got in the rear shocks are 6 x 1.3. This will explain why they are so lazy....

    Yeah, you may need slightly thinner shock oil.
