If you're just looking for something that most LHS's keep in stock, I've used the Traxxas 4tec bladders, I think HPI makes bladders that will fit as well. Not the best, but they work. I managed to damage one of my original TOP bladders, and nobody within 150 miles from me stocks Photon parts.

I think Associated bladders will fit and just about everybody carries ae. I'm using some of the other TOP bladders. blue or green, I can't remember.

Rough day of qualifying today, but still managed to qual 3rd in 17.5 and 5th in mod. Photon's qual'ed 1,2,3 in 17.5 and big congrats to one of our local kids, Nick Reichard for putting in a great run in qualifying. Good jump on the start of the main, but bad luck in the second sweeper. Went from 2nd to last. Worked back through the field again (see de'ja vu from last weekend) and finished second behind another Photon driver (EVilGrafx). His car was on point. Good day in the end. Solaris tires ran well also. They just seemed to get better in the middle of the run and never gave out.

Ran EJ's set up lastnight with the stiff lipo chassis , and it was pretty good. Ran it at a temporary indoor carpet track. I only made 2 changes to it , i went to the 344 springs up front a the 1.0 rear swaybar. Ran it with soft solaris tires

Are you and Tim both on the same setup? When I saw your cars here a couple of weeks ago they both looked real good Sunday morning. Glad to know photons are dominating at your track too
