    How much shock oil do I need?

    I bought four new Integy piggy-back front and rear shocks. They DO NOT come pre-filled with shock oil. I was looking online and found that their are quite a few different oil weights. From what I read for normal driving the best is between 25 and 35. But the what I wanted to know is how much shock oil I need to get. There are four shocks with oil reserves.

    Thanks!

    One bottle of oil will fill your 4 shocks a few times. I like associated oil. 30-60wt works well for this truck.

    Just make sure you get all the air bubbles out. Youtube has some videos on how to rebuild rc shocks.

    When I was using the Integy Piggyback shocks I ran them with 35wt front and 40wt rear. I hate to tell you this but those shocks are no good. Mine were good at first but a couple months down the road they started the dreaded leak. Not sure where you purchased them but if you could exchange them for another set of shocks i'd do it. For the same money you can buy Traxxas Big Bores, new Slash 4x4 GTR's, or Losi Ten-Ts. JMHO

    Or to save money, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the stock shocks once you add aluminum caps and tini shafts.
