Yes I've tried drilling the hole, it doesn't affect the way the bladder works as far as compensating for the volume of the shaft goes. afaik The trapped air just creates pressure that increases the rebound of the shock.

I wouldn't say that the hole makes the shock necessarily easier to build as you cannot rely on pressure in the bladder to force out excess oil - so if anything you have to be a bit more careful.

ok cool,it's just that almost all manufacturers have this feature. dontfeel cold if you try it tell me what happens. i also think it depends on were you make the hole. if arthur made it too high or low it might not work, or let too much air out....

i like the serpent shocks they are a cool design, the piston hole adjustment is a excelent tuning tool!

ooops I think we are talking about different things

I'm talking about drilling a hole in the plastic cap that the rubber bladder pops onto, this is to reduce the rebound. I was more responding to BigDogs post about the function of the bladder being affected, I might have misunderstood what he meant as well.

I reread your post, and I think you meant drilling a hole in the ally top cap to help the oil bleed out giving it an easier path out than through the flats in the thread in the shock body?

If so my post was irrelevant to what you were talking about!

Lesson of the day: READ the post!

yeah ok. i might give the alloy cap hole idea a go... but first i need some backup spares just incase it doesn't work. spare parts for x rays are pritty shocking to get at the moment.

Who makes bumpers for the T1FK, and where can I get them? If I order one, will I even get it? I remember reading quite a few posts a while back from people who had paid for bumpers but never received them.

Thanks,
Josh

Default Setup

Greetings, I'm looking for agood starting setup to use on my FK. I will be racing a medium bite, medium sized asphalt track. 540 Mabuchi motors and Tamiya A 24mm slicks/w soft inserts. The thing is I wanna keep the one-way cause I feel in this class it would probably be faster..... If it doesn't work I can always put my spare diff in....but I really wanna try the one-way in this class...... with the reduced motor braking I think a one-way could add the extra off-power steering I would want....

Thanks in advance.

I got my bumper from Wannabee (Kevin Evanichko) of Rubberneck racing and it worked great.

pdubracing also makes bumpers that work well, but at the time of my order they had no stock.

You can try pm'ing Wannabee on here or contat pdubracing through pdubracing.com

I am looking for a asphault setup too for ideas. I am basically going to have to go back to the box stock setup, so I am looking for an alternative starting point. My setup is wayyyyy far out right now lol from too many last minute adjustments trying to get ready for the next heat and the weather preventing any practice.

Running CS 22s or 27s....large pretty flowing track, just 1 or 2 tight corners. Don't have a one way yet but getting one soon. Running 19T this points series.

Hey,

I got an Evo2 with some hop-ups (short arms & BMI Chassis) equipped with a JR Digital Servo, JR RS300 Synthesized Reciever and GM v12 ESC

Aprox. how much weight would you think I'd have to add to get my car up to legal weight? (1525 grams)

Thanks -Dan
