16-49 everywhere
19-47-46 at the fort
20-47 at Kraceway last club race. Did not like it because it loaded the engine to much in the big in field s at throttle clamped. I'll try a 19-45,46 next time.

Start saturday morning @ 76/69. Do the open practice thing and rotate left to right each tank. Qualifing 74.5/67.5. After each qualifier I'll rotate the rears and cut the fronts to keep the split. 73.5-72.5 rears are money.
This is of course when I'm racin lol call jim then call me...get it

Default Collapsed shock bladders

I have a question about my shock bladders. Every time I take the shocks apart to service, the bladders are partially collapsed. Anybody else seeing this? Just doesn't seem right.

They will do that. Because the cap is 2 pieces they are not air tight above the bladder so it will partially collapse before long.

I use japanese rc accessories name : Pit Shimizu..... Pit Shimizu sell flat surface silicone bladder ( light pink or light blue silicone rubber ) and with black foam insert. They perfectly fit into mugen seiki damper. No more collapsing bladder problem with flat surface bladder...... btw, I dont recall my car handling differences between concave bladder vs flat bladder.

Per the manual when you put the shock cap on the piston should be all the way at the top of the shock body. I push it up until the nut is just under the surface of the oil. Screw the cap on like one turn then angle the shock so that the bleed hole is up and slowly screw the shock into the cap. The bladder will push the shock piston down as you screw it together. No more cut or collapsed bladders.
When this was first pointed out to me I worried about rebound and all that other fun stuff but it works and thats the way Mugen wanted it.
It's interesting to look at the manuals for there other cars because there shocks are all set up different and Mugen is very specific about the position of the piston when the cap gets installed.

Thats a great tip. I did not see that one. I always wind up checking and refilling the shocks after one ray of running due to collapsed bladders

The tires which come with the Edam Spirit 1/8 RTR are rubber tires but on Serpent rim.
