40 losi should be between 35 and 37.5 ae wt(although you might have to mix to get 37.5)


but it usually is about 5wt more than ae wt oil

Serpent's silicone oil is the thickest.

Why can't they make it all the same? Why not...R/C wouldn't be fun that way

I heard Losi's silicone oil isn't 100% silicone, anyone know the story behind that?

You think Losi and Associated shock oil is expensive! Try XRAY Shock oil $6.95 a bottle, half the size of Losi or Associated.

Later,

I have 8 bottles of different weight AE oil. 4 of them have swallowed the "squirt insert". Do the flip top losi bottles have any problems with leaking? I about to go online and just buy new bottles to put my AE opil in. I like the oil but am tired of pouring it out into my shocks. It gets everywhere!!

GS uses these in their bottles. Nice, but be careful if you ever use thick oils, 3k, 5k and so on, and you push hard......... Splater bonus!

Ahhh, I really miss those buggy days!!! .......(not)
