I have ordered some Tamiya 3 hole pistons as recommended by many but in the mean time what shock oil should I use if I'm using standard pistons?
If using the Tamiya three hole pistons I was going to use 40wt rear and 60 wt up front.

60/40 is good.

just what ever you use make sure that there is a 20wt difference between the front and rear.

I looked at those realy closely and looked at the ones in the pics on the blueprint pages and I don't think they're the same. Anyone able to give me a definitive answer? I just didn't want to spend the 18$ on a set of snap ring pliers that don't work for the application. I already ahve snap ring pliers; theyre too big though. I am loking to know the manufacturer or where to buy the exact ones in the demos. Maybe Im wrong about the sears ones though. Anyone know for sure?

I picked up an actual Craftsman set from Sears. Don't have the part number with me but they have interchangeable tips. The tip set on it is the perfect size for the snap rings. I think I paid around $24 for them but they are worth every penny. Just being able to take out the snap ring in seconds and not mangling it make it well worth the price of the pliers. They have black rubber grips on the handles with the "Craftsman" logo in a mustard color on the grip.

The smallest craftsman ones work perfect.

The other accesories help. However if you are just starting out then don't worry arout them just yet. Once you get to the point to where the additional carpet accesories are the only thing keeping you from going faster, then upgrade. The money can be better spent on spares like arms or that 6 wrench set corally sells or something.
