the mongoose has the tensioner on top on the brake bracket, as it is alot bigger than the G4S one. yes easier to tension and adjust brake screws, but tensioning the wrong side of the belt, plus there is the weight issue, as low as it can go

and i thought i knew what i was talking about, LOL slaps himself silly well done patto, know wonder why i ask you for my super tips!!!

keep it up bro

Default Shock question

Hey guys

I noticed that my shocks did not rebound the way they did when i replaced the oil in them. The funny thing is that a didnt drive the car at all. The shocks just sat over night and the next morning they didnt rebound the same.

I replaced the black part on top and the nut, and o-ring. Still didnt help. I then replaced the bottom part. blue o-ring, nylon washer and clip and still the same.

I guess my question is, is this normal? Should they rebound the way they did when i first put the oil in them?

Any suggestions when it comes to building shocks?

thanks

if shock shaft is rough by scratch or bended in detailed,

it will not rebound well.

then change shock shaft to new one.


and i used teflon oil in O-ring and shock shaft.

it will make shock very smooth and rebound good

Yo Gansei master! Dude, I am surprized to see you with that. Very sweet dude. I have a few myself. I got one for every engine I own. If you ever need detailed instructions on that, let me know. But I'm sure you know what's up since you have the thing. Later bro!

I understand about the bent shaft but that doesnt make sense in my case. If that was the case it wouldnt rebound good when i first assemble them. Would it?

A few things bro. Follow what Gansei said for starter. Also, remove the "o" ring, It does nothing. Your shock seals at the bladder, not the O ring. I don't even know why they put it on there honestly. Also, let you shocks sit longer when you bleed them. Also bleed them like 2 or 3 times to make sure ALL air is out. I included a picture of an air bleeder I use, and I still need to bleed them like 3 times to get out all air. Also, I included a pic of this stuff called "Green Slime". If you put this or something equivalent on your shock shaft, then it will give it a better seal. Just like Gansei mentioned. Also, if you haven't already done so, replace the original bladders with the stiffer Blue ones. They won't colapse on you as the "Orange" ones do. Your rebound is probably changing due to air if they only sat over night. Good luck and be patient.

4got to mention i also changed the bladders. When you compress your shocks should you hear any air sound? I do..maybe i am just not bleeding them correct. Where can i get some green slime?

Yes! They absolutely work. It will bring new life into a tired motor in about 5 minutes. You just need to make sure that your engine isn't in "Bad" shape throughout. Because a new squeeze can't help a damaged engine. Only a worn out Piston and sleeve. You also need to be careful to not OVER squeeze as this will put undo stress on the rod. But overall, yes these obtain great results when done properly. You want to make sure you break in the engine again as well.

Dude, if you hear air, that is a big no no. You might not be putting in enough oil, or your not bleeding them well. I assume your bleeding them as the manual instructs? The green slime is an Associated product. You should be able to find at LHS. The part number is #1105. You might need to have them order it, or you can find it online somewhere like Tower Hobbies or such. It's only at the most like 5 bucks and will last a looooong time. Hope this helps. Let us know.
