I agree with Randman. I heard about the oil thing at Trinity and don't think you are always getting the weight you think you are. I have friends in low places and don't count on your oil to be the correct weight.

Actually I think Trinity is pretty consistant, but very thin. Like a 40 is more like a 30 in other brands...

Well the people who use to mix the oils up are not their anymore to my knowledge. I just know because one of them is a buddy of mine. Good thing is was a few years back. I heard that Trinity is about 2.5wt lighter than the Associated oils.

Go for around a 7.4-7.6 final drive ratio.

Randman : Although I am not using the RS chassis, I use a setup very close to yours and found it works very well on carpet.

I figured it would be a pretty good carpet setup as well. I just ordered all of the Yokomo springs avalible through the TC and GT4 line, so I should be pretty good for any track, any surface
