Thanks for the input everyone. I'll give the tape a try. The problem I have is a height issue with both servo mounts.

My low profile servo has not thought about moving using only shoe goo!

Thanks!
I have a extra T.O.P. strap if you switch to the super stiff lipo chassis.

I've been running the plastic ones for almost a year, no issues. Now the front steering knuckles, those are a must in aluminum.

I also broke two of them... if it weren't for the extras that came in the kit, I'd be S-O-L.

Default building shocks

when building shocks, when I move the shocks up and down really fast I seem to introduce more air in through the bottom seal. Is this normal because I can't imagine the shock ever moving as fast as I do in a track condition...

or do I need to work on sealing the bottom of the shock better?

Are your shock caps vented? If you move the shaft fast enough you can hear the air escaping through the hole...
