I use the adjustable shocks and my car behaves very nicely but I built mine from new.

I admit TRF shocks are easier to build, but the result is the same.
I've been messing with these shocks for two or three weeks now. At this point it would be easier on me to just start fresh. I can get the Tamiya shocks new for around $50 shipped so it would be worth the money to get rid of the headaches.

50$ shipped? If they're new, that's a really good price. Where form?

The Tamiya shocks are awesome, but the Xray shocks work well also. If you are not running the adjustable pistons, I would check for a bent shock shaft.

I'm going to work on it some tomorrow so hopefully I can figure out the problem. In the mean time I decided to order some orange and black shocks. They come attached to a few other parts and a new chassis.

That's one way to fix the problem.

I figured out the shock problem. I put new lower shock mounts on the rear shocks a while back and come to find out they are shorter mounts. That caused all of my problems. Glad I figured it out even if I won't be racing this car anymore.
