If you ONLY have Asc or Trinity oils, use 50 wt. That's about equivalent to 30 wt. XRay...

Huh? is this common practice? does xray use its own viscosity scale or something?

I just rebuilt my shocks and was out of the 30 that came with the kit, so I used the AE I had, I guess it did seem a bit thinner.

So I should use the same weight oil front and rear? Never had a car that was the same front and rear that is why I ask.

Thanks again

In most cases, the Xray 30 wt is good for just about every surface out there with a few piston hole tweaks to get a different oil feel front to rear. In general, I run 3 holes open front and rear in rubber, and 2 holes open in foam. Everyone has their own flavor of how a car should feel and whats fast for them.

Default TWEAK PLATE

Does the IRP tweak plate for the T2 align up correct for the T2 007?
I have had problems with my setup boards being out of wack so when i rebuild my car the chassis was bowed because of that.

Yup, the IRP plate works on both the T2 and T2'007.

A setup that makes you die is bad. I like fast setups better than killer ones

Here's a chart that me and Seaball made up. We tested all the oils with a $20,000 machine that is at his work. Some of the oils will differ from batch to batch slightly but this will give you a general idea what is going on with the different brands. Trinity is the thinnest of all the oils. AE, Losi and Hudy/serpent 30t are all very similar. When Hudy goes up after the 30 the jumps get more spread out. Example hudy 35 is similar to Ae/Losi 45 maybe slightly lighter than 50. Then Hudy 45 is closer to Losi 100wt.
