Default carisma shocks

Hey I made quick video comparison on shocks oil vs just springs.Sound is messed up but is not important in that clip.

Saw it earlier today on your channel and noticed the sound. I had my volume up loud from earlier and was like Ahh, what happened lol
I still have to rebleed mine, they don't feel right.

Sorry I tried mute sound on YouTube but I don't know how.My windows phone is acting up.Time for upgrade hahaha.
Getting back to shocks ,they leaked most of oil and figuring out what to do to with that ridicules ball-ends took me couple hours!!!!!But now I think it will pay off.I like they aren't bouncing and adjustable preload is something I looking for.I adding more weight on back and hopefully i get that stupid spare tire sometime in the future even more weight.
After i get everything back together I will post my conclusion.Definitely they not easy to work with.

Not a big deal. I just lowered the volume to a normal level haha. The Panda Hobby shocks are probably the smoothest shocks I've found that actually dampen, but they are HUGE, so not very scale looking and so far not sold separately.

I'm definitely interested in hearing about this. I'm looking at the Carisma shocks for my SCX24, but if they leak, I'm not interested.
