Default suspension tips?

I tried searching the fourm and cant find anything about shock set ups or i just suck at searching so if anyone can send me a link or if they can give me some tips. I feel like i bottom out alot more compared to others at the track if anyone can give me some tips on shock set up that would be great thanks.

Setups tend to be brand specific. What are you running and what are the track conditions?

Default suspension

You need to get to know your shocks man. It really doesnt matter what you have. If you clean em and put new oil in you will be amazed at the results. Start with more oil. Fill to an 1/8th inch from the top of the shock tube. Put the shock lid on and you should get a good push back from the piston rod after you push it in. Then mess with different shock mounts on your vehicle. If you dont have other mount holes then keep changing oil till you like the ride. You DO NOT HAVE TO BUY NEW SHOCKS!!!
