BMI Racing does it again!
Check out the new BMI Vari-Flow shock Pistons for the new Team Associated B6 and B6D.
The engineering trick with these Pistons is the holes around the perimeter instead of the conventional holes going through the face. This allows the shocks to pack when landing big jumps. The oil is directed outward toward the shock body which creates a restricted flow during blunt compression. Doing so greatly reduces chassis slapping and maintains maximum traction and stability upon landings.
Rebound damping is increased by the tapered bottom that helps reduce restriction of the oil that is returning to top of the shock body. Oil is directed back through the holes with less restriction.
All of that yet you do not effect damping in the corners or low speed sections.
BMI has worked at great length with JConcepts Paul Wynn with development and testing. They are both very confident that these shock Pistons are a huge advantage on all surfaces.
These fit the B6 & B6D as well as all the 12mm V2 shocks on Team Associated vehicles like the T5M, SC5m and B5M.
