Default Running T3 with no shock oil

Tried something interesting with running T3 with no shock oil. The car feels very responsive and lots of tracking in any way. I run on a med tracking track, car runs good. And I do not feel anything abnormal. I think if I need slower car reaction, I can either use very thin silicone oil or thicker and stiffer o ring. And I run with soft springs, so it helps here. But my point is the car do not act badly with no oil in 4 concerns. In fact, it runs good. It should not do you any slower in track if you can handle this fast reaction. Plus there is no more oil change or leaking any more. Try it, it may be good for you too.

Can you really adjust settings properly without shock oil? I don't think you could be really competitive without it.

For average racers, they do not change shock oil at the track. So this setting keeps constant.

Post your laptimes for a full run. Put 350cst all the way around and then post your laptimes again. Would like to see the difference.

I was a subtle way of implying oil is faster.
