The manual is a little conservative. I would start with 29/78 for NT stock. 13.5 probably a 25/78 is a good start. I have to look back to see on the 8.5.

What's the deal with people using The plastic RTR shock caps? What are they using them for? What's the advantage? The only difference I see is that they seem to come with o rings?

The plastic caps have bleed holes in them. That makes it easier for some to bleed the shocks quicker. That way it's easier to get same amount of rebound for each shock.

The RTR caps have bleeder screws which makes building the shocks quicker and easier. I use them on my son's 22 and 22T just to make maintenance easier/quicker and more consistent.

Between the 2 of us we run 7 cars, so anything that speeds up maintenance helps.

They have a bleed screws instead of just a small hole in the side of the cap. The bleed screw helps make it much easier to get consistantly bleed shocks. the stk alum caps are alright but takes a little more patience to let the oil bleed out the side.

People are running the RTR caps so they can run the emulsion shocks instead of the stock bladder shocks. When the 22 buggy came out people found they liked the emulsion better than the bladder style. They were cutting the centers out of the bladders. With the RTR caps there is no more chopping up good bladders.

Also the RTR caps come with a bleeder screw making bleeding shocks a breeze. They are well worth the money. Shocks are a lot better with them in my opinion.

This is very true. I've noticed that even having been out of the game for several years, every time that I've changed out the spur gear, I somehow tightened the slipper down to nearly the exact right position! I remember back in the day getting it on there and having the thing slip halfway down the straight, having to pull it off the track, adjust, and go again... but now for some reason I am able to get it right by feel. My diff was the same way. I built it, tightened it down, and haven't had to adjust it once... or maybe I just don't know what it is supposed to be so it seems ok even though it isn't?

Not sure if this is what you mean, but everytime I change to the 'print' view, my computer's virus protection goes WILD screaming about potential security threats... Strange....
