Default Losi 8ight shocks

Are you noticing that the Losi shocks are not as smooth on the car as Jammin big bores or Mugen shocks. Is anyone doing anything special to the shocks to make them smoother or is this not an issue to worry about? The other cars seem to land from the jumps and settle a bit quicker than the Losi cars.

I beg to differ.

How are you building your shocks? I run full rebound and they seem to work fine. Some of the smoothest off-road shocks Available. IMO

FYI Losi does not use Genuine Losi oil when they build them at the factory.....i would recommend swapping it for new stuff.
