So what does everyone run for shock oil weight? I bought a brand-new chimera and noticed that the front shocks are good but the rear shocks have no real dampening. There like they have no oil just springs because the the back of the car is bouncy even with no preload. I want to go to a heavy oil 50 weight or higher but what is recommended?

Betcha there is no oil in it cause mine is fine. Just like the fronts. I have seen a new Losi desert buggy in a local hobby shop like that. Ill bet the factory did not fill the shocks like your rears

I run 45wt in all 4...get rid of the stock oil as soon as possible! You will be glad you did with the better handling.

Rcdad recommended using 40wt on all 4. Pretty happy with the results.
