Default RC8T big bore shocks?

Hello, new to off-road and just got a RC8RS. Wondering if the big bore shocks from a new RC8T truggy will bolt on a RC8RS buggy? If they do, I can get a good deal to upgrade my buggy which has the stock shocks. Thanks for any help.

Will there be any adverse effects from using the 32mm front shocks on the RC8RS? Maybe just taller ride height?

NO. Just buy the Limiter parts, and limit there down travel.

You'll be shy some up travel due to the longer shock body limiting it, may cause some undesired handling characteristics.
