Saw them at Stormers, but they don't ship to Hawaii. I guess their priority mail doesn't reach us.

After several hours of tedious and hard work put into my shocks I have finally found a way for these shocks to not suck air and work well. Here is this method
1. Replace bottom plastic shock bushing with one(s) that are 3.75mm thick.
2. Silicone the entire inside of the bottom shock make sure there is some on the underside of each bushing.
3. Rub your NEW silicone o-ring in silicone, make sure there is excess silicone around the o-ring
4. Make sure everything is seated properly apply a small amount of silicone over the last plastic bushing that goes into the bottom cap.
5. Apply a small amount of silicone on the o-ring that goes over the threads of the bottom of the cap.
6. Apply a small amount of thread lock to the threads on the shock body for the bottom cap.
7. Insert lightly oiled shock shaft into assembly.
8.Slowly tighten down the bottom cap until it is fully tightened(DO NOT TORQUE IT DOWN). Then slowly back off the bottom of the cap a while moving the shock shaft up and down. You are looking to hear a sucking sound. YOU DO NOT WANT THAT!!!!! After you hear that sound tighten cap until you no longer hear that sound. Then tighten it another 1/8-1/4 turn.
9. Put eyelet on (10mm in between eyelet and bottom of cap(more will push the bladder up and give you inconsistent results) and fill with oil.
10. Run piston up and down about 20 times to get the air bubbles agitated.
11. Leave the shock shaft 1/2 way up and put into shock pump.
12. Pump shocks and leave in the pump pressurized for 1 minute.
13. Run piston up and down about 20 more times to agitate remaining air bubbles, reset to 1/2 way in.
14. Pump shocks again and leave in shock pump pressurized for 1 hour.
15. Take shocks out and run them up and down 20 more times reset to 1/2 way in.
16. Put shocks back in shock pump for 5-10 more minutes.
17. Repeat steps 15-16 until no air bubbles come out of shocks when the piston is run up and down.
18. After no air comes out of the shocks let them sit for 10-15 minutes in the open.
19. Take diff shim and insert it under top of shock holder, between that and the bladder. This is to take up excess space in the top of the shock. (may have to file/sand to shock) I put mine on the top of the the top holder, in between that and the top cap, I had to sand the top down to fit it flush.
20. Take your bladder and put on top of recently built shock take the back side of your exacto knife, the not bladded side. Gently push down the bladder around the outside (DO NOT PUSH IN THE CENTER)
21. Run the piston up and down 2 times while making small circles around the outside pushing excess oil out of the shock.
22. Pull piston down all the way, and screw on top cap.
23. check for air, if you hear air, redo it.

Hope this helps

Thanks a lot Rick. How did you like the handling of the car on that big track? Was there anything especially good or bad about it?

When I interpret your setup right, you seemed to be looking for front grip, right?

The car was pretty good and easy to drive. This setup is where I ended up for B-main legs 1 and 2 when the car felt its best and was fastest relative to others. I could use more front grip but this setup was pretty safe.

I will use this setup but will likely use the diff setups from the original setup which I believe is 1 million front and 3k rear. Since we have a practice day I will give it a try as is first.
