    Anybody have some Volcano shocks?

    I tell you what, I've bent more dang shocks this weekend than I ever have before. I bent one on my converted to electric Tornado, and now I've bent three on my converted to nitro Volcano. I just can't win. LoL Anybody got some old junk stock plastic ones they wanna send me? LoL Most of the oil leaked out of mine a while ago, just need something to bounce with that won't hang up.

    RE: Anybody have some Volcano shocks?

    I only wish more people could learn to help out others as I do for though's who really need help with things like how I do when I can. We are a family here and family members don't let each other down, we are all Redcat brothers and share the same love of nitro and when one's down one should help the other.

    RE: Anybody have some Volcano shocks?

    Nahh he shouldn't have to do any mods, the shock's that are on them now have a ball joint heads, all lordmik will have to do is unscrew the stud's/ball joint heads and replace with the included screw and shock attachment that I'm sending with them, that Kuppler didn't have when he got his.

    RE: Anybody have some Volcano shocks?

    You will also need to Mod the Top shock mounts. Something like this.

    RE: Anybody have some Volcano shocks?

    Yeah,,, Screws are 3mm x 20mm long. I used DUBRO hex screws from my local LHS.
    And that Bag of spacers Macanan sent with the shocks has ALL the spacers needed for the re-fit. Should even have the Shock Fluid in that bag.
    Just Buy the screws and look at my pics, and youre home free.
    Great mod that makes a HUGE difference.
    The shocks are a bit STIFF at first but they loosen up after about a week and are Perfect after that for Bashing....
