Default EMULSIFYING SHOCKS VS BLADDER TYPE.

I am considering running emulsifying shocks on my tc6.1.

I haven't read too much about them. Any feedback regarding how to do it as well as possible performance enhancements would be greatly appreciated.

This specifically talks about a Losi 22, but still a great video.

+ YouTube Video

Not wanting to start a debate here, but technically they're Aeration, not emulsification

Ronald Volkler and many Yokomo BD7 drivers are doing this. Not sure if Team AE is trying this on the TC6.1WC. Its easy to try it as long as your shock caps are not drilled/vented.

Will want to invert your car and cycle the shocks a few time prior to each run in order to consistently aerate the shock oil.
