Default Shock Oil Weight Conversion

Does anyone know how to convert the different shock oil weight system? i.e., is 30wt oil the same as 300 oil? Thanks!

Just remember, that there's no standards. So 40 wt from one company, aint the same viscosity as a 40 wt from another company. So stay at one brand with all your viscosity's.

Totally wrong, there is a standars for both static and dynamic viscosity. It's just that no company uses it, nor does they care about telling us if their viscosity is dynamic or static.

Re-phrase: There's no standards on the RC-scene. Satisfied?
