using the o-ring in the bladder, cuases the rebound to react much faster, where as the red bushing is kinda a medium rebound speed, and using nothing is a slow rebound speed.

OK here's my angle on this one...

The shock has a cupped shaped bladder in the top of it as we all know.
What happens is when the shock is compressed the oil is forced up the shock towards the bladder.

If there is neither a urethane spacer or the 2 "O" rings the bladder is allowed to bulge up into the top cap of the shock causing the shock to have a bit of a spongy feel to it when compressed and a fairly slow rebound.

If you use the 2 "O" rings the bladder is not allowed to bulge into the cap when the shock is compressed so the shock feels quite hard when compressed with no "give" and you have a fast rebound stroke.

The urethane spacer provides a feel somewhere in between because it has a little give to it when the bladder bulges up and presses against it. This is what I prefer to use in my shocks...

Hope this helps answer your question

what kind of rebound would you go for on:

high bite (traction) vs low bite (no traction)

and how would the shock oil correlate with that choice?

OK someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that the "bite" of the track has a lot to do with the rebound setting of the shocks.
The rebound setting is more relevent to whether or not the track is smooth or bumpy. One would want a faster rebound for a bumpy track and a slower one for a smooth track surface.

One of the reasons why I run o-rings is that the red spacers get deformed over time. The o-rings retain their shape better.

Intelligentsia, here's that spur/pinion gear chart that you requested.

Hey Wolverator I ended up gearing the 19T at 5.94 (96/42) I used Trinity 4499's with no mods and I used the springs that came with the motor (I took the positive spring and bent it so that it was almost straight) How was socal on tuesday? Looked like everybody was strapping big motor.
