Questions?? What wt shock oil to use for ft & rear sc10 for indoor carpet racing & jumping?

Hi guys,
I am new to this forum & Rc's. I bought a used factory team associated SC10 last night. I used to race nitro road cars about 12 yrs ago. Wanted to get back into the hobby for offroad short course. The shop I go to has an outdoor offroad course & a indoor carpet track. They are going to make the indoor track offroad with jumps & all one night a week. This truck is set up for outdoor use right now. I am going to have to set this up for indoor use. I know I have to rebuild the shocks they need it. So if Anyone has indoor specs for the shocks I would be greatly appreciated if you guys could share them with me? Nice meeting everyone! Thanks in advance for any help. Take care Don

my owners manual for my Losi 8ight-e 2.0 says 40wt in the front and 25wt in the rear. Not the same car, but its probably a good guideline to go by for your car.

Don, you may want to look into the rear swaybar kit made for the T4. We all run swaybars in our shortcourse class on the carpet. Takes alot of the roll out of the truck and keeps it on 4 wheels easier.
