I have 10K and I have 30K silicone, and the hobby store says they cant order 20K cause they cant find it. They also dont know know where to get Sure lube from. Not entirely sure I am going to start experimenting and mixing 10 and 30K to get 20K.
I found that while running thinner lube helps rear traction some it also allows the car to transition faster and turn-in a little better. So far I like 10K in the tubes but traction differences could change this.
Losi makes 20K diff lube so you can ask your shop to try them as it sounds like Jason and the gang have you just about dialed.
Just curious, have you tried the longer position on the flex plates (no tweak screws) with the batteries back? If so what did you think?
