Went to the #55 pistons with 20wt at all four corners. The #56 pistons were way too slow on 20wt, I would have had to go to 15wt or even 10wt, or up a good pound in spring rate... and I'm just too lazy for that. I want 20wt all the way around, just for ease of tuning and rebuilding.
For springs, Green (3.1 rate) in the rear, Silver (2.8 rate) in the front. Did some rough-terrain testing today, but no jumps yet. It's sooooooo smooth and fluid. Tomorrow's tests will be off of the modest jumps on my home track, and some time on the pavement to see if the plushness of the suspension action leads to too much body roll.
I still can't get over how awesome these shocks are. My Slash ain't no lightweight. RTR with my bashing body, it's 6lbs 14.5oz, a good pound more than a stock Slash-- and these shocks make it feel like a 1/10th scale buggy. Everyone should have 8ight shocks on their Slash. They're just that good.
