Default CPS vs. wt diff oils

I see there are different diff oils. Losi uses cs, and what I am getting, Ofna, uses wt. Is there are conversion sheet or something? I got 1k, 3k, 5k, and 7k wt ofna diff fluid. I am trying to make it a LOSI 5-5-3. What oils should I use then?

READ THIS ARTICLE and you will see how much mess there is in oils. Just pick one brand and stick with it. I use Associated oils as they are the cheapest.

I got the Ofna oil for free though. So would a 5,000 ofna be similar to a 5,000 losi or would they be totally off?

If you have a losi use Losi fluid. All off there setups are done using there oil. Ofna can be far off from losi. I have a D8, but no one in the US sell HB oil so I use Mugen oil. Mugen uses a cps system like HB. Read the article Wallot posted.

Similar enough.

I mean if one is 5000 and the other 5100, it is a 2% difference...... does anyone here seriously think they could tell the difference
