Does your buddy race the car at all? I know a lot of people run Losi around here but I have not seen an EU at any of the tracks I race at. I would like to check one out.

I don't run an EU, but I do run the EU caps with foams. I usually cut my foams just about in half, maybe a little bigger than half and round the bottom edge off a little. Just use some sharp scissors. Seems to make setting the rebound you want easier. I feel like the foams are just a bit too big out of the package to fit the bladder properly.

Yes, I have shaped (and reduced in size a little) the front ones, but left the rear alone. Do what JamminKrazy suggested, use some scissors to shape it like the bladder.
The idea behind this, is that the front shock volume is smaller, therefore the bladder volume needs to be smaller to get the same rebound.

-the foam is a bit large,
- i figure that the larger the foam is the more it helps on sudden sharpe bumps. "at speed"
- but not sure if theres a big or a worst affect at slow speed. "larger foam=less oil"????
-maybe run a thicker oil if the foam is stock? maybe thinner?

either way i feel sorry for the reg. 2.0 runners out there that dont have the trick stuff...haha

Don't feel too bad for us, many of us run the shock mod. Just drill the hole manually and use the foam compensators just like the european guys do. Its easy enough to do.
