    Traxxas 1/16 E-Revo VXL Question

    I have a Merv and I just got some new shock bodies. I want to fill them with harder shock oil but I’m not sure which thickness to use. I know a lot of people use 90wt, but I think that’s probably to thick for me as I drive off road and I don’t really jump much. I’m thinking 50-60wt.

I understand the the softer it is the quicker it'll turn in however this also...

    Shock Oil

    Someone please correct me if I am wrong. I want less bounce in my shocks. Would I use a heavier shock oil? The higher the oil weight the less bounce?

    Shock Oil

    What is the prefered weight shock oil for backyard bashing?:) And am I right in thinking the heavier the weight shock oil the slower the shock moves back out and the slower that it compresses? Also has anybody tried shock oil used for mototcycles? Thanks, Ed S&E Motorsports

    Shock Oil

    How much oil does it take to refill all of the stock tmaxx shocks and what is the best weight to use? I like them to be a little stiffer if that helps and I'm not sure what is in them now. Thanks for any help.
