I've been having an issue keeping my shocks air free lately. Can anyone tell me how they bleed them?

That's what I'm currently using.(two blue white insert and black bladder). I can get them and build them air free, but after a few runs the air seems to come back? It wasn't always like this so I replaced the o rings and the bladders and no dice.

Yup using them now and they are very smooth! Zero stiction! When you build your shocks, are you putting the bladder on and getting it to sit flush and then putting the plastic piece into the cap and threading it on, or are you putting the plastic piece on top of the bladder and then putting the metal cap on and threading it?

i was taught by an old school r/c guy. i use a zero rebound so i push the piston all the way up and roll the bladder on, then but on the plastic and then screw on the collar

Has anyone run the car with the stock front axles? I broke a dcj tonight and don't have a spare. It seems like the stock ones chatter violently.

I ran the car tonight and it felt pretty great. I didn't break anything using a hard bumper with aluminum c-hubs, and I had some very solid hits early on.

With the kit setup, the car had good traction all around but was a little lazy to finish the corner. I need to get out for a practice day and really start messing with setup.

The BD7 feels like a winner. I think it's going to be a very viable option for people in the US if amain keeps up their end of the deal. Hopefully someone produces a hard bumper, and Yokomo will make alum c-hubs that'll work with ECS. Otherwise, everything seems just fine.

What hard bumper? I take it you used the stock front axles, do you also hear a lot of chatter with the car on the stand when you go full lock?
