Hey Jason just wondering if the ch12 will be coming with the spring,shock oil and damper tube oil that you think will be used with med to high bite carpet, if not could you post what you think we should have ready for the build so we are as close to the right setup, and you mentioned you use thin servo tape under your lipo pack along with tape and just leave the batt in. would the parma servo tape be thin enough for this. thanks
mike

Hey Mike,

I do not supply the lubes with the kit. It is good to have the 6 sure lubes. They are sold at IRS. I use #4 in the front tube and #2 in the sides. 45 wt. AE shock oil works well with the red spring for carpet.

ahhh,yes, shur lube. The kit comes with a gold center spring which works very well in most conditions. The new front end comes with 1.5mm flex plates and 1.8mm is optional. 1.8mm comes with the front end for the 1/10th front end.

Haha... And still I understood what you were saying

Very nice... I will look around here for some of these lubes then. I don't have them in my pitbox. Is that ShurLube the lube I should get or will any tube lube do the job?

Yeah I did only use a small hole in the tip. But with travel the bottle are often laying on their side instead of up and down...combine that with the Hawaii heat in the back of my car and yeah...they still leaked. Right now I'm debating if it is going to be worth the time to try and clean them up or just buy a new set.
