I was going to ask a question about, but have been to busy at work this week to do anything.
I know on Associated pistons, changing one hole size, you change 5 wt. of oil to get the same dampening. Your correct, hole size effects pack.
With HPI pistons, the hole sizes seems closer together from say a #2 to a #3. Does anyone know what the oil weight difference from one size to the next? Thad?
My car isn't quit close enough yet to start the really fine tuning, like piston size, but it's getting closer.
