Megneg settings
Hi all. I have just got a megneg to put on my 2019 slash 8. It has the RS Deluxe. I ride a Medium and weigh 67kg. I'm about to go through the set up and wondering what settings others have used in terms of pressure, spacers, and then rings on the megneg. I know we're all different but looking for a starting baseline. I tend to ride Rotorua flowy roots type trails
TIA

I am a bit heavier than you (83 kg i think) but i run 2 bands, no tokens in the thrushaft deluxe. I moved up from 210psi to about 250psi. Start with 2 bands, no tokens and go up about 20% in psi and go from there. I tried other configurations as well.

I'm 10kg heavier and run 2 bands. You can probably get away with 1. No tokens on the inside.

Thx!
Now the thing is the trek is a 230x62.5 wich is not a "normal" size atleast its not a size i can find on the FOX X2 DHX2 or RS Super deluxe Coil
They make 230x60 or 230x65 , and since trek says u canĀ“t overstroke ur shock (hits seattube if im not mistaken)
the only possibility is going 230x60 and losing some travel.
Am i right or am i lost in the middle of something?

There's a travel limiter you can replace to reduce the stroke by 2.5mm. Look for the 233-00-38x part numbers: https://www.ridefox.com/fox17/help.php?m=bike&id=1024

TY so much , you are a life saver. I was almost settling for a 230x60 and losing a bit of travel.

I've found Trek's suspension setup guidance to be an excellent starting point. Ride, take a shock pump, add or subtract air, twist knobs, ride some more. Smile

With megneg add 20% more air pressure and a couple clicks more rebound damping to this calculators results.
