Did you soak the o-rings in oil before you put them in the shocks, by soak I mean leave them in shock oil for around 20 minutes.

Correct, I don't think the weight you use makes any difference.

If your going to be racing on carpet I would just suggest getting Rubber Wings and a Spool.

Asphalt I would suggest getting the "Stiff" chassis and a rubber top deck. (rubber wings and spool as well).

Hi mate.
I had the same problem when I changed them for muchmore"pro orings" associated green slime on the shafts and orings has cured this problem perfect. Much more also do a shock slime that Terry has in stock. Great stuff.

Given they only came out last week or so, could be another week or so before the feedback rolls in.

On the same subject, 'if' the Yoko diff fits, we could be golden for choice soon, the SpecR and Yoko brand diffs are supposed to be out real soon, giving up three option in total if they work...
