I hear that wd40 also makes a good traction compound for the tight tracks!!!

The diaphram is not there to pust the shaft back out, if it does this your shocks are built wrong. the diaphram is there to allow the movement of oil as the pshock shaft moves into the shock. if the piston/rod is forced out when compressed then there is resistance when you compress the shock giving inconsistent settings

i am not sure what's the role of diaphragm in a shock, but i notice the shocks does not extend fully (w/o springs on) when i compress it after seeing the diaphragm were popped-in.

so are shocks shaft supposed to extend fully automatically after i applied force to it?

I built the shocks according to the manual but i am afraid i'd missed out some important steps. Pls do a quick run through of the shock building steps, will ya'? thanks

What i did is take the unuse center piece of that body form and place it in the diaphragms. It's been consistence to me, especially on "not-that-very-smooth" track.

the original purpose of the diaphram is for volume compensation just like what cartman said. However, the tension of the diaphram has become tuning tool. you need to be cautious on equal internal pressure of left/right shocks. if your car's handling become weir suddenly especially in the rear, it could have been one of the diaphrams either left or right shock has deformed which causes unequal pressure and rebounce.
