Oil filled shock absorbers... Lovely... They even come with a lil bottle of shock oil... Brilliant...

But....

When you fill the shock with oil you end up with air bubbles in the oil. Air is compressible and thus not a good thing to have in your shock oil :banghead:

Solution.... Wait for oil bubble to float to the top and disperse before applying oil seal and shock lid....

Except that's going to take hours and I'm not really looking forward to sitting holding shock units for hours while I wait for the air to disperse....

BRING ON TEH LAZORZ!

There is very little that can't be solved with the use of lazorz... World hunger? Lazorz! The Middle East Crisis? Lazorz! Getting air out of 1/10 scale shock absorbers? LAZORZ!

Ten minutes of the old Rolf Harris....

Image

Can you guess what it is yet?

15 minutes of LAZORRRING

Image

Yes I know, pink. It was the best bit I could find in the scrap bin.
