Question, I ran the stock vented setup, if i were running the emulsion setup I wouldn't have to deal with holes in bladders... think it's worth making the change for?

Thanks.
You definitely wont go through bladders that way. Ive never seen a bladder fail that way unless it was already defective from the factory. I personally don't like an emulsion build because I feel that the shocks become too inconsistent during a run. The first lap feels good, but seems too loose itself more as the rece goes on and the shocks heat up.

reason for asking this is because I intend to get a ford 150 svt body shell and it's designed for the traxxas (which requires extended body posts). but it doesn't seem to have pre-cut holes for body shells.
Truck shares mounting holes with the SCTE. You may have to drill the body.

It really is a tank, but what I most commonly see break is the front caster and steering block, and the front pin mount "A". Its not very common. I think in the 3 years ive run this truck, Ive seen maybe 2 of them break.
