In my original reply I mistyped, but my conclusion was correct.  

My original post said the R tubes were the same as RS and RT and I
meant to write R tubes are the same as GS tubes.  

As has been stated, replacing the R tubes with GS tubes will have no
affect, since they are the same tube.

Sorry for the confusion.  That's what happens when I type at 6AM.
