    RE: in need of new shocks

    Sean,
    Not sure if you are looking for shocks because yours are bent or if they just dont perform. I have the volcano epx pro and it came with aluminum screw adjustable shocks. Even after adding 70 wt oil they really didn't dampen the jumps or perform that great. I purchased two sets of Losi shock piston tips for about 8 dollars and they can be easily sanded a little to fit firmly in the Redcat shock as they are alo plastic. I used the white ones and drilled a single hole to 1/16 size and left the rest stock. I now use 60 wt oil and the shocks work great. Performance is by far better. The stock plastic piston tips in the redcat aluminum shock have really large cutouts and dont fit tight enough to allow slow oil movement. See attached photo of disassembled shock. I circled the plastic piston piece which can be easily replaced. If you would like to see replaced piston I can disassemble one and repost.

    Salter? Like a broadcaster to throw salt on a drive way? Just a suggestion, If it is more weight you are looking to handle, run to your local hardware store and get a much stronger spring and cut to fit.
