TT01D suspension problem please help!
Got myself a TT01D that I've been learning to drift with and has had about 7-8 hours use. Now when I use the car it sinks down on its suspension but doesn't come back up , so i have practically no suspension or ground clearance.
It was fine when it was new sprang back up no problem when depressed, I cleaned the shocks and springs and that helped but not much.
So what caused this and how do i fix it?
I don't have a lot of exp with cars (I race RC bikes), but I found with my cars/bikes that the shocks never seal perfectly, and eventually oil leaked out, and therefore air got into the shock and caused the problem you described. When ever I have problems with shocks (and I haven't touched them for a while) I always rebuild them with fresh oil and seals (if required) and they bounce back to life (pun intended). When your rebuilding them, give them a good look ever and make sure the shaft is straight, the shock body isn't dented or other signs of damage. Also make sure nothing else is binding (like suspension arms) when you move each wheel through full travel of the suspension.
