It could mean that oil has leaked from the damper which usually happens over time.

How do you achieve zero rebound for the shocks?
When i fully compressed the shaft of the shocks, and place the rubber cap it will hit the end of the shaft of the shocks and causes the oil to spill.

it should spill because it will only retain the oil that is sufficient, just wipe it. To achieve ZERO rebound, JGH achieves this by drilling a tiny hole on the cap.

If you aren't spilling oil no matter what rebound you build the shocks with you probably introduced air to the shock when you put the cap on.

To build with 0 rebound just put the shaft in all the way before you put the cap on.

I've never seen an asphalt setup from the team that used sway bars other than the kit ones

It really depends what you want and how much you want to spend.

If you want the TC that won the world TC title 4x, go with the TRF TC series

If you want the TC that everybody uses at your local track, go with that if it's the Xray.

Either one, it boils down to you and your money.

But if you want my personal opinion....check my SIG with the exception of the last 2 kits listed.

Both TCs are durable, about the same price range and require maintenance.

I know there are some here that had experience with XRay and TRF kits and would provide more valuable and detailed input for you.

For me, I've only owned the TRF TC kits when I started the hobby and later tried the Kyosho brand for nitro TC sedan and 1/8 nitro GT cars since Tamiya did not have kits for those platforms mentioned.
