Aren't they similar to the TRF black bladders. I know I used to use the Tamiya TRF black bladders in my BD5 shocks and the original BD shocks. I am sure Chris Grainger used them also when he ran for Yokomo.

So the bladders might be the same as the TRF, I guess I'll take a look at those, thanks. Has anyone one on here used the TRF bladders instead of the yokomo ones. I have everything to build the shocks after reading the entire thread, ti shafts, blue orings, just missing the bladders, lol.

Where is the diff leaking from? When i built my diff, i put green slim or lithium grease on the o-rings to prevent them from leaking. I let them soak in the grease for 30 minutes before installing them. Had the car for over a month, never leaked.

I have. The trf bladders fit but are not the same shape. Works good in a pinch but the car really likes yokomo bladders and the fresher the better. When you feel your car becoming inconsistent, replace the bladders. Brand new bladders make a huge difference to handling.

I tried the TRF bladder and my car really didn't work.

The Yok ones are a tiny bit smaller diameter wise and as R4E says are a slightly different shape, if I remember correctly the Yok bladder is a tiny bit deeper.

The whole shock is very similar to the TRF shock but almost every aspect is a tiny bit different.

No, the shaft is a through design, so really quite different from any buggy shock I've ever seen.
