I'm wondering if these will work for the scx10 2 shocks. Axial Racing - Shock Diaphragm 13x4.5mm (6pcs these are from the yeti kit Icon shocks.

No that link says they fit XR10 and Wraith which are a larger diameter.

Just did the buttery smooth on my rear shocks. Made the rears a whole lot better. I made sure I got that great too. My shocked leak like a siv but greasing the lower prongs has help a lot. I also set my rear shocks at 93mm instead of 90. Nice difference

Very hard .... bad rebound effects, difficult to bleed properly.

SCX shocks are 10mm ..... you would need 10x ***mm

Try AE 18T shock bladders, P/N 21190. We've been running them for years in comp trucks, and it's night and day compared to stock.

I have tried both the Duratrax and AE parts listed above and I couldn't get either one to work properly. The Duratrax bladders are too big. The AE bladders in the 21190 kit fit but they are a hair too small. Once i had my shock assembled with the AE bladders I noticed the bladder gets sucked into the shock body when I extend the shock. While testing on my bench, I could here a little "pop" sound through the hole in the cap, and then I have an oily mess. Still searching for a bladder that is right between the Duratrax and AE parts mentioned.

One thing to check is that the top of the shock shaft isn't contacting the bladder on compression. You might have to put a small external limiter on the shock shaft.

I picked up a set of Traxxas 1/16 shock bladders last night. Measuring with my eye-mometer and a ruler in the hobby shop, they look like a perfect fit.

I'll post back with a follow-up and a part number after I've had a chance to try them..

The 7062 are a little smaller then the duratrax ones so they should be perfect fit.

I didn't have time to fully test fit them last night but I was able to try it in the shock cap..

It fits into the cap exactly as I would expect it to, I'm pretty optimistic that this is the right fit.

Did these work? I'm heading to the hobby store today and just wondering if I should pick these up.

Thats the 7062? They look a little to small, they should fit the whole cap.

I probably didn't catch you in time, but yes they fit perfectly.

Yes, that's the 7062's. They actually fit tighter than what the photo indicates, I think they fit perfectly. They do fill the whole cap quite nicely.

I've got all 4 of my shocks done and I'm quite happy with the results; they definitely feel plusher and smoother with less stiction. Now just to wait and see if they start leaking out the bottom caps again...




More pics on my Instagram (rc_by_quesodeldiablo) if anyone wants to see but I can't be bothered to jump through the hoops to get them posted on here..

Use the tapatalk app. No hoops to jump. Just select the pic and hit upload/send and it's there.

you can slightly stretch the ae bladder by simply pressing it on a piece of glass let sit for 5 minute then it would be perfect. one my ae bladder was a hair too small and i did this trick it worked out great.

Does anyone know of some X-rings that fit the lower seal section of the shock body?
