Default Leaky TC3 Factory Team shocks

I was assembling some TC3 factory team shocks and they call for a rubber O-Ring in the instructions. When I assemble them with the O-Ring it squeezes out the side and they leak?
Can I sub some thread tape or something and ditch the O-Ring?

Sub with Losi shocks. Mine handles much better.


The shocks will leak a little till the O ring seats if they are built correct.

I should have been more specific.. The O-Ring at that goes around the top of the shock body underneath the shock cap. not the two o-rings in the bottom of the shock. Those are fine.

Make sure the o-ring did not roll on, it will twist and then cause it to squish out. Make sure that the shock cap does not have any flashing on it either.

Now that I think of it.. I did roll the O-ring on. I will check it out when I get home and post my results.
