Yes.

For the other questions start with the stock setup for the RC8B, then look at the set-up sheets and http://www.myrcbox.com/?p=955 for suspension and http://www.myrcbox.com/?p=986 for diffs.

Really best to just drive on the stock setup until you get used to the car enough to really know what changes to make to compliment your driving style. You should be able to find a stock setup sheet somewhere for that car. If it is your first nitro (not sure if you meant first nitro or only first nitro buggy) you will probably have your hands full learning to tune your engine for a while.
