i found these very easy to build with no air, they self bleed..
achieving desired rebound is as easy as setting the shaft to where you want it to rebound to and screw the shock fully sealed..
biggest tip for when building them, soak the foam compensator with your desired shock oil first as if you build them with that dry, it will absorb some of the oils out of the shock body and you're rebound/dampening etc will change..
on the track, its hard to tell as i was happy with the performance with the xray plastic adjustable shocks..
however, since they dont leak and get air in them after a run or two like the plastic do i am finding them to be much more consistent (and also smoother)

i've only ever used the plastic adjustable shocks and while i can build them without air and bleed them to the same rebound, they arent holding up in terms of leakages and require more frequent rebuilds..
i cant compare them to the xray alloy shocks for building, but the bottom loading self bleeding design still wins me over..
