Actually I also went up to a 2000cst oil for my rear diff, 1000cst felt good at night, but during the heat of a day 2000cst felt better to me.

Are you running carpet?
On asphalt currently I use 3000 and it feels very good. Want to try higher just to test it.

Saturday will go for testing and Dimitris will have 2000 so we can compare and see which is better

Outdoor asphalt, tight track with lots of turns, I have only tried like 600, 1000, and the 2000, the 600 felt terrible, I'm be tempted to try thicker than the 2000cst, I know of a couple of Nitro drivers who go way thicker and drive like it's an IC car.

Oh yeah, and I'm generally using Mugen oils, it's likely worth mentioning that, all the brands seem to vary a little to a lot.

I use losi ones.
Our track is big flowing, has some technical parts but not so technical.
Another has 5000, its not bad, but I prefer how my cars feels.

I just wait to test the car as it is first, get the first impressions, and then install and test them.

Only problem will be the extra weight, and the car is heavy already!

A friend of mine used them and he liked them a lot. He used to use Sweep EXP wheels and we use Sweep 36R tires

What weight do you run? Both my ex's are around 1355. We run 1380 as our weight.

New plastic knuckles are coming... just not soon enough for iic. The top knuckle a are not as strong as xray.. and the angle makes making extenders harder..

I'm not sure how much sway bars weigh but I don't run. Them so there is some savings there.

I built a new car for the IIC. Weight without adding any is 1330.

Dont know how you get to 1380 with no weight.

HW body?
