RC Shock Oil Breakdown

Posted on Tuesday, September 14th, 2010 | in Upgrades | 4 Comments

So if you are like me it took a while to get down to the nitty gritty of tuning your RC car or truck. The reason for my lateness to the world of tuning is simply because I never needed it. I spent the vast majority of my time outside with my trucks bashing away, not really paying much attention to “meaningless” things like shock oil.

Certainly you have to decide on some of the larger decisions like whether to get a Lipo, NiMh, or Nicad. Then you have to decide what brand you want to get, certainly that is something we will touch on in a different post.
