If you want to get the best shock performance out of you Axial SCX10II Kit or RTR, check out this this mod on it. I guarantee that you will be amazed with the silky smooth shock performance out these stock stocks. This will also work for you Axial Yeti Jr and Score jr shocks.

Believe it not most leak on these are caused by over filling (if you just followed axial instruction to fill the oil all the way to the top). So when the shaft is compress there is no room to displace the volume of the shaft force oil to leak out. The trick is to not overfill (better yet bleed and use this diaphragm) and cake the o-ring with the greenslime. I have very good luck with this setup.

Right you should fill it to a level when the shaft is compress oil just barely tops.

Agreed. I don't do bleeder screws, but filled properly, green slimed, and with Teflon tape on the threads my shocks go all season leak free.

What's the reason to punch a hole in the cap? I've seen both ways (hole vs no hole) on bladder shocks but not sure why the hole is needed? And will the traxxas bladders work (tra2362 or tra7062)?

The hole is for venting air betweeen compression Strokes when the shock shaft displaces the oil volumes. Having a hole allows more consistent damping rate while no hole would force air to compress in the bladder chamber therefore it would result in faster rebound which is less desirable in crawling.

You can use any bladder diaphragms as long as the fit the diameter but I think the traxxas ones are too big to fit.

I got the tra2362 kit for the x-rings but the included bladders are definitely too big for the Axial shock housings.

For sure, I wonder if tra7062 bladders will work? There for 1/16 traxxas shocks. They fit rcbros shock bodys which I think are the same as these scx shock bodys.

Hey if you just need the diaphragms and save some money like i did pick up the Duratrax: DTXC9182 you get 4 diaphragms for $1.79
