Hey guys. Im still running my shocks with the bladder in them. My question is, How big of a difference are the shocks with the bladder compared to the emulsion shock setup?

M2C RACING IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF OUR NEW REAR TOE
BLOCK SYSTEM FOR THE SCT E 4X4 TRUCK

Toe blocks are made with 7075 aluminum for maximuim strength and anodized black.
The hinge pins are made with 01 hardened tool steel and tapered to allow the
hinge pins and arms to rotate togather in the delrin bushing. this is a duel style system meaning that the arms can rotate around the pin as well as the pin rotating in the bushing. what this does is that if you do bend a hinge pin,it will most likely bend in the smallest section of the pin. this area is not in the bushing or the arm, so it will still allow the arm to work properly and not bind.
the hinge pins are 4mm dia so you will have to drill out the arm with the supplied drill.
the toe blocks are designed to use the m2c racing delrin bushing which has
proven to last way longer than the stock injection molded plastic that most
manufactors use.(3900 series inserts)
the rear toe block is set at stock settings and uses the 1 dot insert(0) degree
insert.
included in the insert packet is:
(4) 1 dot (0) inserts
(4) 2 dot (1) offset inserts
(4) 3 dot (2) offset inserts
(4) 1/4 degree offset inserts
(4) 1/2 degree offset inserts
This give you a total adjustment range of 1 to 5 degrees toe
with fine adjustment of 1 degree either direction from the stock settings
This is where 95 % of all system operate:
The Antisquat block also uses the same inserts and allows you 1 to 5 degrees
of adjustment.
Now to the good part, the Rear toe block (D) block has been machined to allow you to lengthen the wheel base by 1/8 inch to fit different track conditions with the use of 1/16 x 4mm id delrin spacers.
this will allow you to run the stock settings or 1/8 inch longer simply by moving the bushings.
Caution:: this may not be a legal lenth at ROAR races with the arms moved
back.
part no. m2c7100
replacement hinge pins m2c1701
replacement bushings are 3900 series and are sold seperately in packs of 4.

Why are the emulsion shocks better than bladder?

Thx for the losa6262 ref.
Though it seems it is also the part used with 8IGHT 2.0
Thx for your input, that manual is really bad compared with 8IGHT 2.0,
Best,

PS: was in Sydney last August, in Warroonga
A screw's a screw. Definitely the part - I ordered the wrong ones (5-40 1/2) at first and then finally got the right ones and they match the other screws and fit perfectly. Got some blue loctite in there as well.

The truck just feels more planted and stable. When I first ran them I thought the local track had smoothed the bumps on the track out, but they hadn't touched it.

I have tried emulsion and feel the hype is unjustified. Build your bladders with zero rebound and you will get excellent landing and handling shocks. IMO
I can see emulsions on a lighter vehicle, but our Fat Girls like bladders....kidding of course

If team drivers used 4 different tires in all 4 corners....most would do it also thinking it will make us faster.

Hi there,
Totally agree.
Was running normal (no emulsion) with my 8IGHT 2.0 nitro and wanted to try emulsion with drilled alloy shock cap... RESULT:
Went quickly back to plastic (no emulsion) with bladder and NO rebound: best setup ever on a very rough 1/8 track.
Best,
V

PS: even thinking of using my 8IGHT 2.0 shocks on my scte...

It's all personal preference. I wanted to try it to see what it was like and felt a difference so I stuck with it.

The setup I have now are with the bladders in the shocks. I havent tried emulsion yet but everyone is saying so much better than bladder. My setup seems to be pretty smooth and everything. I cant complain about it but I thought I would ask and maybe try it sometime.

It doesn't hurt to try, if you don't like it then all you have to do is put new bladders in. Again, it all depends on if the driver can notice the change, track conditions, etc.

With that said lunsford makes the ti hinges for revo, so just get them at 8 dollars a set and cut them the right length for either stock or the snr hinge pin holders since they are thicker.

Nice work, I was about to drill out my arms, but now I will just pick up a couple sets and cut them to length.
