i bought a set of integy xsr2 shocks instead of reading reviews first. had a shopping spree at the local hobby store few months back. i share similar issues with them as others do also although i have read teflon taping the threads reduces leakage and blowout issues. also traxxas piston rings fit firmer in the chambers. i also noticed they dont come with foam inserts for the piggyback overflow.
i cut up a open cell foam tire insert for the resevoir and notice a slight difference. does anyone know what material the foam is made of? or if there is something better like soft rubber or closed cell? has anyone attemped any of these mods? i see promise in the shock build but need some tweaking. thinking of it teflon tape is kinda quirky to apply to the small threads maybe plumbers doping seal would be better.
ive had issues finding overall specs on shock dimensions but would prolines dual rate springs work on integy shacks or traxxas big bores? thinking of buying diffent springs like those dual rates for my integy.
