Red`s up front and whites in the rear...and they work with long~short arms very well all you have to do is mess around with the oil..

Yes I have run the Reds all the way around...but the rear was a little to loose for m liking ..but that was with a 300M and a Dodge 2.0....you might want to try the ALFA 2.0 or the new ALex bodys....also I wouldn`t go thicker than 40 weight with a 1.2mm pistion..

thanks for the info you have a PM also
Hey KOR, I've trie the Rayspeed bladders, I think they're just too thin on the sealing lip, the std Yokomo is a better fit.

Could the bladders be done with the standard cap? You could make a tighter seal, and run whatever bladder you wanted...

Never thought of that, so I just took at a look, and nope, wrong shape inside the cap, the std plastic cap relies on an o-ring seal on the shock body, the top of the cap is is a tapered chamber, no surface to seal against.

I don't think the standard cap would work very well as along with the blader there is the foam pad that needs to sit flat between the bladder and cap, the standard caps would give the right seating or spacing for the foam.

Dave- are the Rayspeed springs the same size as Alex Racing springs? or are they slightly longer meaning low ride height is tricky to get?
Do you ever run on rough tarmac or low grip surfaces? or can you get away with the red and white because most places are nice high grip and smooth tarmac/ carpet?
don't suppose you have a chart of their springs with rates in GF/mm

If you really want to test with the rayspeed bladders, all you have to do is take the part of the cap that threads onto the body to a belt sander, take maybe .3mm off the bottom of it, and you should be able to get a tight seal...

Of course that is an option, I thought of that too, but honestly there doesn't seem to be as much tuning in that area as I thought there would be. It would be interesting tho try the Rayspeed pistons though

The Rayspeed pistons won't fit on the R2 shafts. The RS piston are thicker by ~.4mm and the diameter it longer by ~.1mm. If you still want to try the RS pistons, you can try putting them on Yok shafts.

Thanks for the Heads up, HeadB
