Iīve been running the same Yokomo black bladders for about 3 months now and I havenīt had any inconsistency problems so far. All my troubles with the car have mainly been fault of the guy wrenching and driving it... Still totally loving the BD7.

Same here, my son has been running the car for a while now with no inconsistency, he's just moved to mod and the car hads great.

There's nothing wrong with the bladders if you upgrade to the black ones

Hi All,

which Brand and Type of bearing are you using on the BD7, does the ceramic bearing really makes the difference?

Best regards and thanks.

Yeah I switched to the black bladders blue o-rings and no issues anymore. My car in mod is right on pace and still super super easy to drive. I have a pretty goofy setup compared to most but it works really well for me.

I'm pretty sure racing4evo was talking about the clear bladders which swells up pretty fast and make for inconsistent rebuilds on the shocks. He was telling me that he could not find the black bladders which everyone else seems to be happy about.

I will share after testing three more things.

I am waiting for Green Springs, Front Diff, and rear DCJ's. Once I give that a whirl I will let you know.

I agree, it seemed ridiculous to me when I found out. Everytime I put brand new bladders in, the car was DIALED again with a capital "D". The car is still good with old bladders but new bladders just elevates it to another level. What are "...fresh ones" anyway and when do you consider them not be "fresh"? Excess air, uneven rebound? Well you can all attribute those issues to the stock bladders. If you love the BD7, get another one.

I'll admit that I have yet to use the black bladders, not because of my reluctance but rather due to my lack of access to them. I have them on backorder from A-main and I would order from HK if my mailman didn't consistently lose registered mail from asia addressed to me.

So maybe instead of making a broad stroke generalization about the bladders, I should have been more specific as to which ones, the stock clear bladders.

My BD7 is easy to drive though and I couldn't ask for a friendlier and compliant car. It's on pace against everything under the sun around here from awesomatix, ae, hot bodies, tamiya AND xray. The people I'm racing against are not slouches either, they have their stuff together. Last time out, my race time in 13.5 blinky was faster than 90 percent of the mod cars.
