Use small jumps, I would say. Its a really tiny truck.

for the micro-T, I would say if you do dirt at all, you should do something really hard packed. You don't want it to bog down in the dirt.

I think the vehicle looks like it would work best on carpet in my opinion. Looks fun though, hopefully there will be some oil shocks for it.

At that scale shocks are completely useless. There is almost 0 weight transfer, plus how would you build them? Itd be like 4CC of oil.

i know guys that put vasoline (just a little bit dont fill it!)in the shock bodies. they have run them on a slot car track here lol. personally i would just get some really good clay dirt and for all its worth speed would be good and track maintainance should be a breeze. doubt you would need any jumps over 6" tall and the trucks are so light i doubt it would blow any of the track out. they do make alloy shocks but they are from imported companies like gmp i r (look them up on ebay) they arent oil filled either.

after seeing one go, if an oil shock was available, regardless of size, its not useless. Very bouncy.
