After one day racing (8 batterys) i noticed that they leaking damperoil very strong!!!
I read then that tamiya advice to shim the o rings.

Now my question: Have anybody expirience with these blue TRF damper O-rings?
With wich amount of shims is the leaking Problem fixed?

Greetings Blueman
.2mm is a good starting point to try. Took care of the leaking for me.
