Default Help!...no shock oil left!

I need 20 and 30 weight to redo my Xray FK05 shocks but nobody has it!

Will another brand such as (AE or Losi) work?

What viscosity would equal the Xray weights?

30wt is similar across the board (ae, losi, hudy), but the hudy stuff gets heavy very quickly. ae and losi are similar, while trinity is a few points lighter.

I believe the XRAY 30 would be closest to AE 50, or Losi 45. Someone may have an exact answer but with the adjustable pistons that should be able to get you close.

Like Seaball said all the 30wts are similar. After that the Hudy takes big jumps. The AE and Losi are finer steps. An example is Losi 100 is about the same as Hudy 45. I would stick with Hudy 30wt and use the adjustable pistons like Bobby said.
