You need to read more son.

Synthetic's. Losi makes a bundle of different ones for $20. Assoiciated makes it too. Also depends on set up. Read the set up guidelines. tells you.

Seriously though. Post in these forums these types of questions.

Depends on whether or not you run asphalt or carpet. Carpet, most run 35-45wt, and I'm not too sure about asphalt.

Your car came w/ 40 weight AE shock oil in it. Of course, you can choose any weight you want to affect how the car handles.

Here is a link to the AE oil that came in the shocks from factory.

It would depend on what springs you are running, and what surface you are running on.
