Default Damper Oil Air Remover

Hai all,

Is this tool, a must for racer ?

Does it make a big different than not to use it ?

WHich brand is best ? I see Tamiya and Ride make this one...

Please advise.... thanks

Waste of $$$. Just pump the shock and let it sit for a while, like we have for over 30 years...

I got the Ride one. Works great.

If you got all the time in the world then you don't need it. But if you ever need to rebuild your shocks during a race, you'll be out of luck if you didn't have the air remover.

I had the Ride one and loved it...but unfortunately the silicone grommet in the top split on me, and now it is useless . Sending an email to Japan was not surprisingly a dead end.

I'll definitely get another one sometime. I haven't heard of anyone else who had the problem I had.

If you think it's a waste of money, you have never used one. Once you use one, you will never say that. I have the Ride one.
