Hey guys, its been years since Ive last been active on the forums. I have recently gotten back into the hobby now hoping to get more involved with off road track racing. i have quite a few cars my most recent being a 1/16 brushless revo. I have to say this truck surprised me my first time out. It was a handful but it did well. i run 2c lipos and 3c lipos. I have to play around with tires and the shock setup and im sure it will have no problem keeping up with any other cars. so my question is. Has anyone figured out a way to get better damping out the the shocks on the mini revo? im running tans in the front black in the rear with 90 wt all around also with one hole piston all around. any ideas?

Oh, yep. I've been battling that for years now. Have you tried to screw them downwards? They are threaded shocks. To get more dampening, I'd go down to a 60 Wt oil, like I have.

get stiffer springs

wish I could remember which springs I got in mine(they were some aftermarket ones forgot who made em) the dampening is pretty decent.
