I would like to switch gears this week and move over to the 1/8th scale side of TLR and talk about some things I do when I’m working on my TLR 8IGHT’s. Let’s focus on shocks: one of the things I’ve been doing is that I make a small hole (with a hole punch) in each shock boot and I make sure to have these holes on the back side of the shocks when installing on the vehicle. I believe this helps with the consistency of the shocks.
Also, a lot of people might not know that the shock spring cups need to go on a certain way to prevent them from accidentally getting dislodged after a major crash. The spring cup should always be with the slot for it to be installed on the shock shaft facing out.
