Squirrelod shows you how to put together a shock assembly or a shock absorber on a Factory Team remote control car kit. He takes us through building the piston - shaft, dampener, nuts and over rings step by step. Practical tips and tricks involved in building up the shaft and the recommended oil used are presented. This is not something that should be done in a hurry since time is needed to let the oil settle thus removing any air bubbles in the piston. Although the instructions for different kits may defer, the basic principles of building the shock are usually the same.
