I'm not sure what weight oil as I just bought this used. I know the guy said it has big bore shocks I just feel like the front when you press down on them they stay down see attached picture. This is the Losi tenacity I'll take pictures of the Traxxas/also the slash has 60 weight oil in it I've also tried it with 40 weight with the same results does White springs almost a picture of that too thanks for the help.

The losi needs new shock shafts they are bent also a shock rebuild kit and new springs..
slash rebuild and replace with new springs unsure if shafts are bent(rebuild and you will see when you take apart. more than likely the diaphragm's are also shot if you have any at all

I would also pull out your a arm pivot screws and make sure they are clean get all the sand and old oil and stuff out of them make sure that they move freely

Ok not to sound dumb but what should I do the rears on the slash are new with new springs that's what the RC shop sold me. The LOSI just bought and the guy said he just put the big bore shocks on it. I took shocks off the look straight. What would you guys do 1st for the least amount of money
