Red face Thunder Tiger EB4

Hi fellows,

Please be so kind and help me with my EB4,

The particular EB4 I have is a S2 RTR, buggy goes quit nicly and is lots of fun to drive, BUT, I always have the same problem with the car.

The front and sometimes the rear shocks seem to loose their power to lift the chassis up to the level setup position I have setup. i can rebuild the shocks untill I am blue in the face/ have blisters on my fingers, after the first run the shocks have lost it again, not returning the chassis to the level position.

Now, I have checked the following: - the shocks don't leak oil, all connecting arms don't bind, changed the shock oil viscosity...

If any one could shed some light on this problem, or hint in the right direction, It would be appresiated greatly

increase your pre load on springs (more spacers or clips on the shock bodies) this should help..

Ok, thanks for the reply

Won't inserting clips on the shocks just increase ride hight?
