Default VCS2 Upgrade

I know this is a dumb question because I have been around RC for a while but can someone explain the VCS2 upgrade for the TC5 Shocks?

I am new to the touring car side of things and need a little more info on what exactly the advantage is to this upgrade?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks, Michael

If you have the shocks that come with the TC5 then you do not need this upgrade. The VCS2 upgrade kit was for the older TC3/TC4 VCS shocks which used a foam piece inside the shock body for volume compensation. The TC5 already has the VCS2 bladder system included with the shock package.

I have the TC3 shocks and they are already installed.

I was just wondering what the bladder system does for the shocks compared to a shock that does not have it?

Thanks, Michael

I believe it makes it more consistent run to run and will bleed less.
