For Bashing purposes it's really up to you. If your hit huge jumps all day and you keep slapping the chassis on the ground then Raise the wt. of your Shock oil. Just remember if you go too heavy it's going to stop soaking up the small stuff and may start screwing with your approach to jumps. Most people that I know that just bash with the TMax seem to go with the 30wt. seems to be a good weight. It's really what ever feels good to you. Try a few different weights and see which one you like best. Just don't make huge leaps in shock oil, IE don't got from 30 up to 80, Maybe 30 to 40. The other thing you could try is different Pistons but I don't think there is may options for a TMaxx.

Like I said if you r unhappy with the wt you have in there now, decide how you want it to improve and go from there.

well, i really havent experimented with it yet. i drove it in my yard and up and down the street. i got a small ramp i was jumping. i have one large shock spacer on each shock. it really seemed to handle the jumping good. i havent tried any big jumps yet. i do notice it dont handle very good in turns. it doesnt take much for it to flip around a turn.
