Default Proline Powerstoke shocks. Anyone use them?

I have a set on my T-Maxx 3.3, but having trouble getting them to be as good as stock. they seem very weak, even after installing the ultra stiff spring set. Do I need to put in heavier oil, I have 30wt in them now.

It should be fine with 30 wt. Are you sure you got all the air bled out of them?

Hi,I have a set I just put on my T-maxx.I noticed the same thing as you.These shocks are suposed to be top of the line race shocks.I also changed to the extra firm springs and I run 35wt oil.It seems to be alot better than before.With the stock springs it seemed like they did not want to rebound much even if you cranked down the preload.Did you make sure that you bled out all the air in your shocks when you were filling them with oil?It still isn't the best but maybe thats the way there set up to be.I have a E-maxx with the 3 racing alum.reservior shocks and they seem to rebound better than the Proline shocks.

What do you do with the truck...race or mainly bash? If your jumping and getting big air, go with thicker oil 40-50 wt.
