no I dont have a chart, but just thought I'd let you know I know its not correct is all.

I would assume most people know AE shock oil is on average 2.5wt heavier than losi, ie. ae 35 = losi 32.5, which is not represented correctly on the chart.

Sleep-

From what I understand based upon conversations on here and at the local tracks, is that, that chart is incorrect. I thought they had updated it but it doesn't look like it.
This topic came up about a year ago and we had concluded that the muchmore oil ratings on this chart were wrong. Logically, if the Tamiya camp like Gilles etc are using 500-600 Muchmore oils that corresponds to 55-62.5 wt. Associated on this chart. I doubt that is true. Muchmore and Sweep are supposed to be the same. Just listen to Martin to be safe and run the Yok 450! Or try ASC 37.5 if thats what your shop has.

Cheers RAL,

Well that chart is from Sweep's official website. I use to be a strong believer that MM are cst until I saw this chart. Hence thought MM=Sweep. Until recently, i couldn't get any MM oil & Sweep was the only alternative. Don't really fancy AE. Quite difficult to get Yokomo oil as have to order abroad. Wish Martin would pop by & clarify:

I.) Is Yokomo oil (cst)?
II.) What oil is referring to when he said 450?

i found this old review on RedRc:
http://www.redrc.net/2007/06/much-mo...one-shock-oil/

The last oils, for me, have only a different bottle so i really think MM oil is cSt.
I also tryed to compare my MM400 with the original Yok400 (found into the car kit) and a KFactory 400 (that is cSt).
My feeling is that the density is the same, i can be wrong, but if i try to compare those oils with a MM600 last one seems a little bit high as density.
I think also Yokomo is Cst and also Martin i'm pretty sure he is talkin' about cSt oils.

May be for more info ceck this: http://www.twf8.ws/php/index.php?opt...per&Itemid=175

Some time ago i found this table and i found it pretty good. It is attached as pdf.

Hoping this can help you.

What track width are people running on the front end for asphalt? I put the BD5 knuckles and c-hubs on my BD and it seems a little wide. Even with thin wheel hexes.

Thank you in advance.

Im sure they just add pins in a certain area to lock it. Kinda like how xray does with their multidiffs!

yes, front is wider than rear. which it's does make the rear more gripper and easier to drive in any track.

sakura is front narrower than rear making the car too much steering and rear less grip which PITA on low traction track.
