    I need Ultra Shock HELP....

    This is where my front end ended up after a drop test from 15-18" with a 5200mah 2s battery in the truck. The springs are Losi 4.1lb. I have Losi 35wt oil in all 4 shocks. The rear seems perfect. The front is WAAAY too soft.

    These are the stiffest springs I have and that Losi makes. How much should I go up in oil weight? I have oil up to 80wt.

    Oil just adjust dampening, not rebound. Try playing with preload and geometry. I just ended up with GTRís. Much better in every way.

    Thanks. I'll play around with preload. I have a pair of front GTR's. Rear GTR's are cheap. What springs and oil weight are using in your GTR's?

    I run 70 wt with the red Emaxx springs on the front #4957 and the white progressive on the rear #4957R, the truck takes a lot of air with no issues, with 30mm hub extensions and very rarely ever get a roll over.

    I put the biggest preload on the front shocks. Big difference! I took it for its maiden voyage today. It handles quite well and jumps great, nice and level.
