Nitrohouse .com should have all the parts you need. As far as I know all the Ultra parts are interchangeable..Not sure about that though

If your oil is too thick, it will hinder the springs and pistons from giving you the lift you want off the jumps
i think im going to try 45 in the front and 40 in the rear

You can get away with those numbers but the landings are going to be funky. Won't want to stay straght. Don't go for big air or a bent frame is in your stars. Go lighter with the oil and put white spring on and let it drag on the face of the jumb and landing will be smoooooth. Next you want to get it to turn in better. Stay tuned....

Thicker oil does not let the springs work as well. the springs will compress and actually kinda catapult your buggy off the jumps. Ifg the oil is too thick it will hinder the spring rate..You dont need us to tell you..go to your track with 3 different spring sets and 4-5 different weights and experiment for yourself to see what you like best..It all comes down to what you like and how you drive
