Damn, iīm beginning to lose faith
WOW, I'm not sure why your having such an issue. I've rebuilt mine a couple mines with no issues. Did you drill small hole or ream small weep hole in side of cap, basically thru the sidewall.

Put the the bladder on while the shaft is up and when you lay the bladder on "roll" it to one side so that the extra oil comes out. If you just lay the bladder on top and give the oil no where to go you will have rebound. Try that and see how it goes!

After you have that part figured out, install the cap with the bleed screw completely out, tighten the cap all the way down, leave the shaft up and to be honest i would just leave the bleed screw out, but if you want to use the bleed screw, screw it in while the shaft is up. you should get as close to zero rebound as you can with this technique.

Greg, Myself, and 2 other locals(Doug and Terry) did some testing over the weekend at the RC Clubhouse Halloween race. We've found out there can be a 7.5wt difference in shock oil depending on the type or brand seals when using the same pistons.


We've tested the following.
AE X-rings: leaked really bad out of package, ended up not using this seals.
Kyo X-rings: smoother than stock with less stiction but required 7.5wt heavier oils
Traxxas X-Rings: same a Kyo X-rings required 7.5wt heavier oils
Stock O-rings: Although they have much more stiction, I've found this seals to be the most consistent and since I've already had the shock package dialed-in with this seals I ended up using them over the weekend.

I see a lot of people running copper front and black rear sway bars. This would yield more steering than silver/silver correct? I am curious, because I dont really want any more steering in my car

And again , we've found more people that had zero packing they're 2 hole drilled, so our local machinist nick Vasquez , hooked em all up. I think I may be the only other that drilled mine, per nicks instructions tho, but our cars were dialed last weekend, with nick being on a blistering tq run, but lap traffic wasn't having it, 1st through 5th were like 5 seconds apart. We turned a lot of heads with this. Car

1.3x4 f/r. I am debating 1.2x4 in the front, as my weight is transferring too fast imo.

After getting the 2 hole dialed in I see no reason to switch now. The shock package is the best part of this car now I feel

2 stage will help with that since the rear will rise faster than the front will fall.

I think 2 hole in 12mm is the best combo too.
2 hole with what size holes?

Per nick (nv529)
I'd recommend using this method

#55 or #56 pilot hole
Front: Drill with #53, check hole with 1/16" drill. If it doesn't fit drill with 1/16" bit
Rear: Drill with #52, check hole with #51 drill. If it doesn't fit drill with #51 bit.
Take your time the holes should fit snug against the drill bit when the size is correct.

Just a FYI: I've checked my drills with a .0001" micrometer 1/16" measured .0623"/1.582mm, #51 measured .0667"/1.694mm
