Default Good video

I am not a Losi guy but this is a great video from Adam Drake on how to set up your Losi shocks with the foam compansators.

All good UK shops, but Id have thought it cheaper to get your local Losi dealer to get one in for you?

I've found it to be opposite. The rear shock shaft takes up more amount of space at full compression.

I've cut my foams in half and that works just dandy for me.
