Default what is the cst of losi 100wt shock oil?

Ive looked at the charts, but they don't go up to 100wt, so what is the cst of losi 100wt shock oil? I have ae oils, but I need something thicker, so I'm trying to find the cst of the 100wt.

Quick Silcone Oil Conversion Chart

CTS VS Losi/ASC Wt
Cts Wt
100 15
150 17.5
200 20
250 22.5
300 25
350 27.5
400 32.5
450 35
500 37.5
550 40
600 42.5
700 47.5
800 50

Double 50 is 1600. If you are worried, take your best guess. if 80 is 1000, try 1200

That's a conversion table I found online. I don't use one because I use AE oils and I go by weights, but comparing the one you posted with the one I posted they are pretty close to each other. I don't even think Adam Drake could tell the difference in 15CST.

All these conversion charts are just estimates.
Every brand of 30wt oil = a different CTS rating. Losi 30wt does not equal AE 30wt.

But if made correctly and certified, every brand of 400CTS = 400CTS

The reason is because there is no measurement for "WT", but there is for "CTS".

If you need something thicker then 100wt, try 2,000CTS.
