Exclamation Shocks!!!

Hey guys I just took my car down to the track today and the oil spilt out of the shocks!! This is like the 4th time it's happened. My shocks are only plastic so I'm thinking of upgrading the metal ones! Will this make a difference it will I just keep on having to refill them with oil like the ones i have at the moment? And info on this will be greatly appreciated! Thanks

You are better off getting a set of alloy bodied shocks for the sparrow hawk.
Once you set them up you shouldnt have to worry about refilling them all the time.
WIll only need to check them from time to time but they will be much more dependable than the plastic ones.
I have the onroad sparrowhawk which is set up for rally offroad but 1st thing i did was fit a set of alloy bodied shocks for the extra length and reliability

i have the hobbywing 13turn combo in mine, but if you want it to go faster you can try the hobby wing 9 turn combo which is cheap and goes quite well
