I opened the oil shocks, the front set. These are empty. I assume the rear set are empty, too. Is that normal, or do I need to fill these oil shocks immediately?

If you want them to work as shocks and not just springs I guess you might consider some shock oil....from my view of the Z Buggy shocks they appear to be able to house some oil.

There is a bottle packed together with the car. Use this or go a tad thicker.

You are not supposed to run these shocks empty.

I thought these shocks have already been filled and ready to run. Is it possible the oil leaks from the shock?

they do not come filled, you must fill them using the method prescribed in the manual.

yes, it is possible for them to leak.

How often do you refill those shocks?

Depening on your personal usage. The ones used in my Lazer Buggy need refill pretty fast (but we have a demanding course with big jumps), the ones used as shock for my 03 last for more than 5 months right now.
