    Dear community!
    I got very lucky and so I‘m in the middle of building a Gelaende II D90 (pictures below)!
    I ran into some problems with the shocks though...
    I believe they are Rock Krawlers 90mm (how do I find out the length?). I think this truck was sold as a „Ultimate Edition“ quite some time ago.
    These shocks look ok, but they can not handle the weight (I want to add a trailer for my yacht as well) :-(
    Maybe I can fix that with shock oil (what weight?) or new springs?
    On the other hand, I might go with shorter shocks for a more scale look - any advise on new shocks?
    Thanks a lot for the help!!!

    stiffer springs should help. you can turn the top collar down and it will make them stiffer

    Do you know how to find out the length of the shocks? (Kind of need that to order springs;-)
    Plus: what weight of oil would you recommend?
