C-Clip spacers will add preload , you can also stiffen them up a little by disassembling and putting a small amount of grease inside to increase the friction damping , however if you really want adjustability , you would be better off searching some aftermarket oil filled shocks
Thank you. Preload should be ok I suppose. Can you be a bit more specific where I can get those spaces from or how can they be manufactured at home. It's written that the clearance is adjustable for both the 1/18 truck and the 1/16 SCT (same shocks). How can this be achieved if the trucks don't have adjustable shocks?
The shock towers have different mounting points :)
C-clips for 1:18 shocks can be found on ebay or similar , HK isnt stocking them yet . You can also make your own by finding any plastic or silicon tubing the same size as the outer shock body , cutting a slit in it and slipping over shock , that way you can make them any size you like , I have even seen people use zipties LOL
The spring retainer slides , so anything between it and the shocker top can be used to add preload , the fancy clips just look cooler
pull down the nut, there is a small metall bar that needs to come out, shacke the car and hold it that it falls out. Then you can take the shockers apart and put a drop of oil in them (if you want, you can unscrew them, but that's not needed for oiling). I just did it, one shock was dampening and the other 3 were not, now they are all smooth, hope it allows the suspension to work best.
They don't have a real dampening effekt, but nevertheless they work great. I suppose it's hardly any difference with this size... the car is crazyly agile, so I wouldn't know what could be improved on this part.
its very good that you can buy spare parts of all kinds you need like this item or others of its kind

Diese Dämpfer sind leider nicht sehr gut Verarbeitet, aber was erwartet man um diesen Preis?
Abstand der Befestigungslöcher: 52mm
Ich verwende diese Dämpfer Paarweise in einem Losi Mini Rock Crawler Scaler Umbau.
