its not as much the dirt as it is the size of the jumps.. biggest track in country = biggest jumps + hard packed dirt = chassis wear.

I'm not sure what they come out to in centistokes but here is where you can see the different colors and their weight (viscosity). Buying the six packs is a good place to start cause you will have more options. There is three different six packs to choose from:

IMO you will be very happy with hitec servos, and maybe someday ya might wanna upgrade that steering servo to a 5955 or the new 7955. Thats a hardcore servo!

If you purchased the kit new, you should have received an appendum about the longer screw and the addition of the orings under the battery box.

If you didn't get said appendum, you can find it here;

http://losi.com/ProdInfo/Files/8IGHT...ndum_LoRes.pdf

The only real 'kink' I found in the rear gearbox feeling notchy when it's tight. Many run it a little loose, I actually reemed out the bearing housing on the inside by about 1mm to give it room. My Losi spins like a Kyosho now.

Hope you enjoy your buggy! It's a great performing machine.
