Default Shock help

Can someone tell me how to get my shocks right on my NQ please? I fill the resivour up with thirty weight, but no change....Obviously air is my problem, but how to you beed with no valave?
Does anyone know the process? I need them stiffer...I notice that even with resivour filled you can still push piston to the top but if you keep doing it, it sprays im i on the right track? Help if you can, had my truck a month and havent played yet...t

only fill the shock about 3/4 full ... use heavier weight oil to get a stiffer shock ... adjust the spring so there is more preload on them ... look into getting heavier springs ....

The Duratrax shocks are a problem child! I went through 2 sets just running on the street. I don't know if it is a bad designe or just poor quality? I would get some better shocks! IMO Ofna makes some of the best shocks out there but, I am not sure if they have any of the same size although they should be close.

thanx the front shocks are fine...the back was just sagging....everybody keeps saying my truck is a piece of **** but it seems alright to me..the hobbyshop guy is a dick, he wont even help me if it aint a savage...someone told me about pouring in a little oil at a time, and moving the piston real slow...I was kinda doing this and it splattered everywhere....Is this the correct process? I could have been going to fast or done something wrong
