The losi brand works well.

Thanks dude! I finally got access to the Z01B and T forums. Hardly any info there. I'm gonna pick up the oils on the way home tonight and start putting this thing together.

Hey Brad, welcome back to RC racing! Sounds like you and I might have raced each other in electrics back in the day, perhaps at Hobby WareHouse here in Sacto. I'm local in this NorCal area like Frank, so looking forward to seeing you at a future race. Delta's winter series rocks on their smallish indoor track, so plan on that for sure! Let me know if I can help you in any way buddy!

Thanks for the offer! I raced mostly in the Bay Area back then. RWC, SJ, and we even had a cool back yard track here in Pacifica that we raced often, even had the Schumacher guys there one day!! I am about to order some oils. Stopped at both LHS' and neither of them had most of the viscosities I am seeing in the setup sheets. GGRR, I just want to start putting it together!

Quick update. Got a PM from Mr. O himself. We played phone tag tonight, but he has offered to help me set this thing up from day one! That is hands down the most stellar jesture I can imagine. Hats off to O'Donnell!
