Steve- are we setting up a Barracuda only zone in the pits We can pass on track conditions and car set ups much easier if we are within earshot.

Post Yokomo shock caps

Has anyone been using the Yokomo bladder caps on their Alex shocks?

I recently put a set on my car but have some concerns over the increased length of the shock.

(looking for a shorter shaft...since a shorter shock body would be out of the question?)

An experiences would be helpful,

JC

just make sure that you are getting the FLAP R2 chassis and not the R1 vesion!!!!!!!!! ..Because I know for sure the 100% that the ONE FLAG will not work right!!!!! it will hit the batterys!! because it's not offset like the R2 chassis layout

madjack,

I got the shock caps on my car before I measured them and they seem to be just fine. I roughly measured it after I install them and the bladder cap assembly is a tad shorter than the plastic cap (but plastic cap also go over the shock bodies a little bit when you put them on) so I suspect the overall length of the shocks with the standard cap and bladder cap is about the same. I'll show you tomorrow at SoCal

I'm pretty sure he's expecting the next batch in mid may, along with some more spare parts and hopups, like the Speedway PAL drive system I wanted in blue

My Cuda is getting dialed.
It qualified 2nd in expert mod at Speedworld and ended up 3rd overall. Not bad for its first mod race.
