Default SLASH SUSPENSION

JUST CURIOUS, BOUGHT MY SON A SLASH RAN IT TWO OR THREE TIMES.
RUNS FINE BUT SUSPENSION DOES NOT REBOUND THE SAME. TRIED A LITTLE WD 40 ON HINGE PINS HELPED A LITTLE BUT NOT TO THE POINT IT WAS. ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREAT.


THANKS

Check all moving parts for binding. Check shock shafts for straightness. Something has probably been bent without you realizing it.

slash is natorious for bending shock shafts and just the slightest bend will affect the rebound

I noticed that there was very little rebound after the shock was fully compressed. This was a stock shock with the 30W oil and without springs. I rebuilt the shocks and had full rebound afterward. I have a buddy that checked his brand new Slash's shocks and they were the same way, little to no rebound.

After the rebuild my truck had less body roll and was a bit more responsive due to the lack of "sponginess."

I noticed the same thing just before I changed out the oil in a set of new shocks. Zero rebound.
<<That's how i roll
