Default Shock Oil Weight

Hi guys,

I'm getting ready to rebuild the shocks in me Team Associated T3 and I was wondering what weight oil I should use. If you go to www.medinarcraceway.com you can see pictures of the current track layout. There are quite a few jumps and sharp turns. Being new to this I don't know what weight I should start with as a baseline.

I would start with AE 30wt oil all around with #2 pistons up front and #1 pistons in the rear.
