Default Shock oil question... 350wt=35 weight?

i am rebuilding my Xray's and the book and setup sheets say 350 weight XRAY oil, and 400 weight Xray oil... is that roughly the same as 25 and 40 weight oils?

NO! more like 20/25w for 350 and 25/30 for 400.
But, also depends on the brand..
This link should help.. Oil CPS Vs. WT

Default PT RC Racing shock oil chart

I provide racers with this chart to use as cross-reference and they all have good results transferring over, used by many pro drivers including X-ray driver Jason Branham

PTRC Fluids are hands down the most consistent fluids available today.

I use them exclusively in all of my race cars and in our customer builds.

I have just recieved email reply from PT RC and am happy with costings on oils.
Also happy with quick reply, I have just asked about postage costs and then will likely be placing an order.
