The team says that while the rod at the common piston exerts and moves from one side of the cylinder, the rod from this specially made piston moves in both sides of the cylinder.
Make It Extreme’s piston has an inner diameter of 30 mm. They placed the component in both sides from which the rod passes through, and inserted the piston at the center of the one-piece rod. Because of this, the piston could function from both sides.
In all, Make It Extreme says they were happy with the creation of the piston rod, and they hope to use it in their future constructions.
