    TRX-4 chasis kit questions

    I had a couple of questions about the kit...

    1) Anyone have a decent build video of how to put the shocks together.. I can't find one. when i put my shocks together it seemed like it was either too much oil and the shock wouldnt compress properly or the shockis too empty and squeaks..

    2) I bought the chassis kit and so far so good... but am curious about the long arm kit... is this required for a certain body, the bronco.. I looked at the statistics and it appears that they are all the same from stock..

    In order to get the shocks full you have to put oil in then fully compress the shock to remove the air and add more oil

    I noticed this with the shocks as well, a tiny bit too much and the shock will not compress to the end, a tiny bit too little oil and air gets mixed in at full compression.
    Better a bit less oil and get the full compression.

    It takes practice to get good at building shocks.

    I don't know if they mention it, but you should coat the o-rings in "Green Slime" which is available online. You can also go directly to the source and buy a lifetime supply of Noleen SF3 for around $10.
