    T MAXX squat

    Hey everyone, If you have ever drove a T maxx Then you know the ass and likes to sag down under acceleration pretty good despite having spring spacers. I recently installed the Hot Racing 100mm big bore shocks with dual rate springs and Losi 32.5wt oil. I wantedto keep that stock plush feel...

    Weird dual shock mod

    Okay, y'all, so I was bored and was just looking at my slash 4x4 wondering how I could make it better without dumping a bunch of money into it, and I had this idea (which would cost a bunch of money). So y'all know how you don't want your suspension so hard that it bounces around, and you don't...

    Some burning questions about upgrading shocks

    Hi everyone. I've done my best to find this bit of information but have came up empty. I have a HPI Trophy 3.5 and parts are becoming rare to nonexistent after they discontinued the buggy.

    Pro-Line Powerstroke 6025-00 (Pre-Slash)

    I know i can't be the only one with these anymore and trying to search online has been excruciating to search for as they have the same "name" as the newer ones released for the slash, (i guess they aren't really that "new"). so with some research and intense squinting at over-zoomed pixelated...

    Tekno Shock Standoffs

    Tekno has just announced a set of Tekno shock standoffs, that when used with the Tekno shock bushings (TKR8730), allow the shock only to pivot between the standoff and the bushing which in turn moves the wear surface to the bushing itself and increasing the life of the cap. Continue Reading

    Shock oil weight wt

    I've been reading up on this and since there were no threads under suspension (sorry if it's covered elsewhere) thought this would be a good place to start since it can make a massive difference to how the car drives. I understand the the softer it is the quicker it'll turn in however this also...

    question about diff oil weights vs shock oil weights

    I was wondering if I could combine my much thicker diff fluid with my lower shock fluids to try to achieve the weight I need. the fluids I am using are both from associated. basically I bought 4 bottles, 2 of 35 and 2 of 30wt shock oil, and I need some oil in the range of 50-80 weight for some...

    Shock oil info

    The HPI Big Bore shocks arrived today. They'll be going on a Savvy brushless conversion with the extended FLM alloy TVPs. I need some recommendations for which weight oil I should run in the front and in the rear. I'm thinking heavy in the rear to keep it from squatting too much, and lighter...
