Ive never had a leak in my shocks. They go together just perfect. Only thing I could ask is for an externally adjustable piston option for testing

I wouldn't go so far as to call it a flaw when you only know of 2 people and yourself having this problem...

or try to put an insert in above the bladder, lots of people use the tamiya pink foam dealios, but I like the Yok ones because they're a bit wider (and I already have them... )

Is there a general concensus about a rubber tire of carpet set up? I am assuming one of these should get me pretty close.

Is this the only 1 way available for the rdx ?

Exactly.

The reason for this is because .8mm is 1 deg of toe and not 1mm, and .4mm is 1/2 deg of toe. They did it to keep it simple.

Later!!
Well, the arms are in short supply due to molding complications. The material did not shrink properly and caused the 5,000 or so pieces of 35 arms to have too small of hinge pin holes. Reaming them just would not be accurate enough so they did not release them to the masses. Instead they have been fixing the problem and should be available shortly.

We will also send you some when you change the spelling to "Corally" in your signature.

Yes, those setups will get you close.

Yes, that is the only one-way for the RDX.

Worst case replace the bladders. If you sprayed them with motor spray I would definately recommend replacing them. The motor spray seems to attack them and make them swell.

Swollen bladders are not good. See a doctor.

The Corally shocks are fine. Although, I'm not the biggest fan of their bladders. After testing multiple shock oil weights in a day, I noticed the bladders became very swollen and difficult to re-install. I also found if the bladders became too swollen then the cap would not re-seat properly and cause a leak. Furthermore, After replacing the swollen bladders with some fresh new ones i figured my problems would have been cured. Unfortunatly they were not. It seemed that the new bladders were very slighty too small and would not seat properly and also cause a leak.

I know there's other people that have not had these problems, so "maybe" I just got a bad batch. Finally, I followed Barnacle's advise to try out the tamiya TRF bladders and I no longer have any leaks.

latest in the lipo use project.
6 of these glued to an Orion Lipo that has shrink wrap around it. 20 g apiece for a total of 120 grams possible. Can't wait to try it out.

I was actually just dealing with the whole leaky shock thing today.... the shock bladder would slip off and break the seal. I noticed there was shock oil on the cap, the plastic part at least. If that isnt dry then when it crimps down on the bladder it slips off and breaks the seal. I just cleaned it up really well and it went away. The cap/bladder assembly for the corally shock jyust has to be really clean and dry and everything will work. If you have any doubts just replace the pastic cap part and the bladder and everything goes together well again.

Thanks Jeff. Are there any other parts necessary to adapt the one way? Right now I am running a foam carpet spec car and am wanting to try my hand at rubber carpet. THX
