Had to take a quick break from painting to thank Muffin (Art) for putting so much time and effort in the car for Racer Chick (Toni). It is really a work of ART. Thank you!!
Looking forward to seeing you all at the birds!! OK back to work!!!

They are Associated shocks with Yokomo Bladder Caps (a similar system to what Tamiya uses in its TRF shocks). You can get the caps through Speedtech R/C or any Yokomo dealer.

I think the bladders help you build more consistent shocks, and I find I've gotten better results with them. There's a fellow I race with who has studied fluid dynamics and can go on about how you can use bladders as a tuning option, but I think that's far beyond anything we need.
