I should say i don't remember having this issue when I started running it when they first came out. This car has ALLOT of run time on it but is well maintained. I've never worn out Pistons but I will know soon enough. Was just wondering if anyone else had seen this. I believe I started with associated 30 weight and it was good. Now at 50 weight it's still not damped enough so obviously something changed.

And it's slapping on landings. It's just blowing through the dampening. just trying to pin point it
Make sure you replace your seals and bushings at the bottom, if your pistons worn that means they are letting it get side load rubbing during tansitions..
