The damper might be a tough one though. What exactly is it doing?

Mike Slaughter
I purchased the car used so I am still learning the car(1st awesomatix). Upon further review, the dampers are actually the original 700 ones (DL1/DR1) so I'd have to replace at a minimum 2 to keep things somewhat balanced.

The damper had fluid leaking and the piston screw was not locked into the piston, it was just spinning. The dampening was noticeably lighter than the other side.

I managed to crack it open but not sure what weight fluid is supposed to be in it. I tried 30k but it seems light. Either rebuilt it wrong or need to go thicker fluid.

If Mike doesn't already have you hooked up, I actually have a complete set (all 4) brand new, still in the little plastic baggies. You'll want to replace all 4 anyway if you're still using those old dampers. Just hunt around for the guys from Wisconsin and ask for Stogie.

Catch a Sydor should be your new catchphrase.

Just like one year I was announcing, DJ, Brad and Billy were running 1,2 and 3, so logically I said, "It's now Johnson & Johnson & Sydor"

If the wind blows just right everyone gets to see Lefty and Big Moe.

Is there going to be a hobby shop on-site? Hopefully one that has servos with them? Or does anyone have a Futaba 9650 or a KO servo I can buy off them? My world GT servo decided to take a crap and I'm in rural Ohio at my in-laws.
