yep, thank you.
gonna try some losi rear pink springs instead of the durango light blue.
I need some stiffer springs for my RM3 setup
I feel the light blue springs are ok, but a little bit on the soft side for a RM config

oh shoot.. you're right.. sorry, I read that wrong! The top is easy... simply make sure the inside rim of the cap is sanded smooth, make sure you put shock oil on the o-ring itself... and it should be fine. If it catches, simply back the cap off till it lets go of the ring, and then try again.. after a couple of snags it will cinch up just fine. After a rebuild or two, it will just stop all on it's own.

I'm currently running the Losi white rear spring which is rated slightly softer @ 1.80...compared to the TD light blue. I've been running this car for 3-4 weeks and tried every oil, piston and spring I could get my hands on. 4 hole 1.2 pistons on all 4 corners....f/25wt r/20wt losi oil......Orange losi fronts and white rear springs worked the best in my opinion....ride height f/23mm r/22mm

What kind of surface?

For me on med. bite clay/dirt mix, 17.5 blinky I had really good laps on these:
-Losi Silver front
-1.3 4 hole
-30w
-Stock rear springs
-1.2 4 hole
-20w

Track is medium bumpy and not very technical.

Blinky 17.5. Our rear shock setup is almost exact. Clay med to high bit. Fairly flat with no huge features

I'm going to be trying the same pistons, but tapered this weekend. I really don't want to change the buggy setup at all, but I think the tapered pistons should help settle the buggy in the bumpy sections.

Im gonna try this !!
doesnt really matter if you run 17,5 blinky or a 8.5 turn regarding springs and oil right?

your description of your track sounds a lot like mine.
I do not have huge jumps, not to technical but can be quite high speed.
low/med clay/dirt out doors

Goodie! I'm gonna take a look at the inside edge later on, and sand them down a bit. I still think it could be a good idea to "cone" it in as well with a dremel, to force the o-ring inwards while tightening. I'll try this as soon as Durango gets the caps back in stock. Like this other guys said here as well - it might also be a good idea with a tighter smaller o-ring. If I remember the AE ones right, they have to be streched quite a bit to fit them over the shock body edge.

Aha! I rest my case...
Uhm. Actually, I won't - I'll follow my case up with a Dremel.

My DEX210 comes tomorrow!
I think I will go straight to the 4 hole pistons, and will close the other 2 holes with the solder-station and some plastic of the plastic-trees.
25 rear, and 30 front losi shock oil will be my start setup.
Everything else will I leave stock.

I'm really looking forward to it, new manufacturer, after leaving yokomo after 2 1/2 years.

What are the other important steps to watch, than diff and shock cap?
I will use the 23 pinion, with 87, using a 8.5T X12 octa motor.

Actually stock/mod does make a difference. The faster speeds of mod class increase the shaft speed considerably and can make the rear end pack up harder than stock. My buggy feels great with 4 hole pistons but Cush's buggy is bouncy off of fast jump landings. We keep trying different 4 hole combinations on his and keep reverting back to 6 holes. Next up is a set of blanks drilled to 5 hole 1.2 and another set at 5 hole 1.3. His car drives very well but needs more pack, but 4 holes have been too much pack for his car and our track.
