Default 1/8 shock oil ?

Just curious to see what shock oil you guys run in your 1/8 scales. I have a 9.5 pro and the suspension just seems really soft, I havent had it on the track yet but want to see what everybody else is running before I destroy it from bottoming out thanks

oh I'll be ready dont worry about that, my 9.5 will hopefully be ahead of that mugen of yours, when does the mbx5 come out, If Im dissapointed with my ofna I might buy your xr if you still have it. Let me know when your going to be doing some practicing.

i will still have xr for awhile nobody knows yet when the mbx5 will be out

and i may not get it right away (yeah right i cant help myself)

my mbx4xr is 100% ready for the track only been run once since its last rebuild

and it ran really well i got 4th in the A at the charity race and i think i set the fastest lap (i heard 28.6 and i coulda swore normal was 30-32)

and ive only run that body one time too

i dont want to get rid of it at all i want to keep it as a spare for my kid of if i had a really bad day with mbx5

but i dont think i can afford to

CANT WAIT TILL APRIL

by mid summer i gaurantee i will have a new engine and buggy

you dont even want to know how much ive spent on the mtx-3

im addicted to spending money

I think I have the same addiction about spending money. I think I already have about close to a 1000.00 in my 9.5 and I havent even hit the track with it yet, Or for that matter my mtx3 hasnt seen the track yet either, thats all going to change shortly thou.

Did you get your universals from just rc? Thats were I got mine, Hopefully mine will hold up since this will be my first full year of nitro. Are you running close to factory setup, what tires are you using? Do you have a tire truer? I need one or does someone usally let you use theirs?
