Default TF2 suspension mod

Just bought an used tf2 and need tip on best suspension setup.
Have read about chino mod, O-ring mod and other. Still confused about wich mod to go for?

What's the best method without to much drawbacks?

I did the chino mod on my rtr TF2 and it made a small but noticeable difference on the 1.55 tires.

Also took the smallest leaf out of each spring set.

People have said to take the spring out of the shocks, but when I did the truck sagged way to far, so I put them back.

Here's my set up. All I've done is the o ring mod and removed the springs for my shocks (added 45 wt oil).

Personally.. after 2yrs or so, of build time.. something just didn't feel right.
I tried the "mods". I tried other, upgraded, scale shocks..
Performance just wasn't there..
I swapped in a set of scx shocks, built for one of my comp rigs, and I haven't turned back since!!!

If you're after performance and don't care that they Look scale.. scx shocks, Rock!!!

They are scx-10 shocks.. it's more about how they are built, then which style/model of scx shocks you get.
Here's the axial parts..

Green slime!!! 3 o-rings (not 2 o-rings and the black disc, like stock)

Machined pistons..

A few vendors have the springs, spring cups, and spring collars..

Then get em mounted.

Wow, that is cool. Are they filled with shock oil or drops of diff oil?
