Default Shock Oils

Are there any "Non-R/C" oils that are acceptable to be used in T3 (or any I guess) shocks. I ask because I have no LHS, and I thought I read that someone had Automotive Oil in his shocks.

Monster the only auto oil that I know of that is being used for RC is for the LSD diff's that came with the older K-cars. It was a 90w-120w gear oil from either Royle purple or Redline and both would work. I don't think you will find any auto oils that would work for shocks. Can you not order online?

Default Yes, but...

I'm sure any motorcycle/bicycle shop will have shock oil. (silicone based, even)

The viscosity i.e. thickness of the oil will be another matter. They are similar, but the numbers will vary.

p.s. can't you order online?

Default Yeah

Yeah, I can order online, but just trying to have a variety of viscosities "handy" for experimenting. My closest "LHS" is TWO hours away!! Just wondering what options MAY be out there. Is it anything like paintball markers (guns), NO petroleum products?

Eh, guess I'll just have to order some, wont I? Unless someone chimes in with some new info.

Thanks for the help
