Silicone doesn't change viscosity, but it's not pure silicone. A nice example, it's not possible to color silicone(What I been told by experts at that field). Still, Losi's "pure" Silicone oil comes in various colors... hmmm.....

No matter what, O-rings and everything gets harder, so softening your oil is still needed.

ps: My compound is pure 96%, and the one for my car is about 40-50%

kh15:

There is a guy that goes to the track that builds motors and will cut a comm for you. Not sure the shop keeper will be much help because he is a nitro guy.

If you are at a race and you ask around, I am sure there will be someone that can help.

Join the forum on the website and ask the question. I am sure someone will answer.

You will be in good company with your TC3 and he has plenty of AE parts on the rack.

I can't see how having less rubber contact the road could improve traction unless a treaded tire heated up faster. Given the same operating temperature a slick will always have better traction than a treaded tire.
