Is the R1 still worth running? i'm looking at leochan's R1 in the for sale forum. what's different from the R1 to the R2? I'd buy the r2 or r3 but it seems no one wants my xray...

all the way in. Some people stops when the screw is tightly in (might be halfway).

Then it looks like you lossen the bleeder screw and depress the shaft almost to the threads..
yes, the shaft must be depressed about halfway. Turn it upright and loosen the bleed screw (while the shaft is still halfway in) and the oil will bleed..
Once the bleeds stops, tighten it back. You should get a smooth dampening effect when you push the shaft.

Most of the time the bleed screw will bleed eventually even if you tighten it up afterwards.
Either you go for different shocks like TRF, you can replace the black plastic cap with Yokomo SD aluminium cap that comes with a semi transparent rubber diaphragm. Leak proof and it will save you time redoing the schocks in the future.
Just my experience, hope this helps.

Hey Scott,
72 spur gear for me with between a 26 and 31 pinion depending on which brand 19turn. Running 72 gives you a little room to run lower pinions (mod!) while allowing you to gear up for stock without a spur gear change.

The only problem I had with 72 tooth is I chipped a couple of them on a rock through the opening in the chassis with parking lot racing..
