IF you have the Losi option shocks I believe Losi has a "fix" for this problem. You will need to contact them directly. This was a common problem with their first batches of option shocks for the Mini-t.

I believe the clear washers are the "improved" ones.

I have mine done up tight, and they don't leak. You may consider changing to the 3Racing shocks, which have a more effective seal.

teflon tape on the threads helps a ton and do not overtighten. if you have overtightened them you need to replace them.
