Default Shock Oil Comparison Chart

Hey everyone,

I have created a pdf for anyone that wants it, it is a chart of different shock oils being compared. This is based on as much data as I could find on the different ratings of shock oils on the net. If I have made any mistakes or if anyone has anymore information for me I will be happy to add it to the chart.

I made this for the simple reason of being able to compare set-ups and thought it might be useful for others, I am open to any suggestions or changes...

You can download the file at the link below:
Download Shock_Oil.pdf

** I must give a thanks to Team TWF8, as allot of my data came from them

can you please explain the chart a little more? are we suppose to want a lower or higher cps at any given wt?,or should we use it for those extra-fine adjustments?
i am going to do a little research on cps and wt readings,but any help is appreciated.

the chart is more for comparisons between different oil manufacturers. So if you ask a guy at the track what shock oil he is running, and he says losi 40 WT, and you only have xray oils, then you know what Losi 40 WT s equivalent to in Xray oil. So your setup will be much closer.
