Default Jammin- not sure what I have....?

I just bought a Jammin X1 buggy RTR. I felt the need to change out the shock fluid so i bought some Losi 40W and 45W, 40 in rear and 45 in front. I got these viscosities from "Chad Bradleys Starting set-up for all tracks" set up sheet. It seems as though this fluid may be a bit thick. I took it down to the track and i lost a bit of steering and overall handling. My question is what is the fluid that comes in the RTR shocks? and what pistons come in the RTR shocks? I looked at some more set-up sheets from other drivers and most all seem to be running thicker fluid (45+).

ps. I wasnt really paying attention but I remember seeing 2 holes in the pistons when i changed the fluid- not sure if it was front or rear...

phlatiron I pretty sure it comes with 30wt. The diff's I think are 3000front, 5000center and 1000rear.

Mikey are you running the shocks from the Pro kit or are you running the big bores?

Thanks Mikey! I was running 40fr & 32 1/2 rear and thought the 40wt was just a hair to heavy and was going to try 37 1/2. Are you running the Jammin reds or a different spring setup.
