Default Losi shock tool - balancer

Is this thing worth messing with? It is supposed to balance your shock rebound or something...If you have one tell me what you think, please.
Thanks in advance

no it doesn't balance them for you. It's just a gauge. It will visually show you what shock is weaker after you rebuild them. I use one and i think it helps. It takes a lot of time to figure out how to match shocks perfectly and this is a good tool to help.

Thanks. I am fairly new to racing and was just wanting to get into some of the finer points of tuning the vehicle and was just wondering if it was worth messing with and the $30

yeah for 30 don't expect to be AMAZED by it. It's going to be a gauge! Don't get yourself to excited by it.

I just make sure the rebound is the same when I rebuild my shocks...saves me $30

Thanks everyone. I think I will take that $30 and pick me up another gallon of nitro, and leave that thing hangin there.
