G Made Piggt Backs.
 
In a last act before the garbage bin can someone shed light on how to get these things to stop leaking.
I have used green slim, which I thought helped briefly.
I slight leak is understandable, but leaking to the point where adding fluid every few days, whether the rig has been used or not seems a bit excessive.
I run two sets of power strokes, one set pro specs, traxxas GTRs, even stock traxxas ultrs with not one drop of leakage.
If this is simply G Mades nature? I think I see a set of scx10 power strokes in my future.:roll:
Its really a bummer as they work great, however keeping dirt from thr leaked oil and oil in the shocks rather the their exterior is becoming a daunting task.:cry:
I tried a search but am having some trouble manipulating the forum being a noob, hope to get the hang of it soon.
Thanks
Bill.

PS edit wouldnt let me correct the miss spelled piggy back shock, sorry.

I had the same issue. Come to find out I missed putting a oring in. Double check the directions. Make you sure you didn't do the same. Cause mine haven't leaked a drop since.

I added a little teflon tape (pipe thread sealant) on the lower threads. Do it with most of my shocks - no leaks at all.

May I ask which o ring.
Mine leak right down the shaft, I've removed and rebuilt the two lower rings in every shock and caked on the green slime.
One has slowed down to an exceptable range, the other three are just horrible.

Try changing the lower o- rings to I believe the Traxxas blue o - rings. I think those are a bit tighter.

Thank you, I will definitely give them a try.
