Default Oil weight comparison

I personally need the info right now, but I thought it might be good to have a thread like this for shock and/or diff oil comparisons between brands.
What weight of X brand crosses over to XX brand... etc.

My question is how does Losi shock oil compare to AE shock oil?
thicker? thinner? similar?
I'm trying to follow a setup sheet but Losi oil is not carried by my LHS
Opinions...

Losi oils are thinner than AE's. I use Losi shock oils and AE Diff lube.

Thats what I was afraid of.
The setup sheet I am following calls for 55w losi front... 45w losi rear
Any thoughts on how that translates into AE oil?

That as Losi weight is too high. That is like for the European tracks. I usually run 25 weight up front and 20 weigh in rear with Green springs front, Pink springs rear. Also 57 black pistons with 30 thousandths limiting front and 60 thousandths in rear.
