Default springs & shock oil

are there any different springs available for the nemesis, ( other than the stock red genesis )? or can i use other springs & shocks from a different truck? what weight shock oil is anybody using? my problem is the ass end of my truck bounces really bad when jumping, 90% of the time it lands hard on the front end. ive already busted both sets of front upper & lower arms, & hubs.
seems to me that there is too much rebound.

Hi rcnitronutt the best thing to do is to pull out the shock spring preloads, this will make the truck stable and controllable when jumping, it will also lower the center of gravety of truck, you will should notice a big diffrence in handling.
Note: This is our track set up.
: Shock oil # 1000
: Wheel axles level
: Toe front - 1 degree out/rear 3 deg in
: Camber frt & rear -3 deg

The 1000 weight oil, is that a typo? That seems very thick for shocks....... wouldn't that make the suspension very slow and not responsive?

European standard 1000cst same as 40w

For reference

20w=100cst
25w=180cst
30w=600cst
40w=1000cst
45w=1400cst
50w=2000cst
