Default Silicone oil Equivalent of 50WT to Cst

I have a manual that says to use 50WT silicone oil and was wondering what its equivalent for Cst is because my oils are in cst.

This article is more relevant to RC - http://www.twf8.ws/php/tip/shock.html

I think the moral of the story is - use Cst oils if you can; use wt oils if you must; but don't mix the two and don't mix brands!

ok will just use 600cst oil and see what happens lol

this is too complicated... why do they always have to have like 1000 different units (meaningless most of times) for one single thing... make it all the same so we can compare

This is the first time I've heard of CST. What the heck is CST? All my shock oils have always been Silicone?

???

Associated shock oil bottles have both WT and CST numbers on them. Go check them out.
