MIP MBX8 Bypass1 shock pistons

See: MIP

MIP have introduced new Bypass1 shock pistons for the Mugen Seiki MBX8. 1/8 scale racing has been plagued by under performing shocks for decades. Most racers spend hours drilling, grinding and sanding 1/8 scale pistons trying to get the perfect feel only to go back to the drawing board to try it over and over again.
