Default Shock Oil Guru's: Weight diff between brands?

Okay, any of you shock oil guru's measured the difference between brands of oil. Mostly trying to compare Orion oil and Associated, but maybe alot of people would like to know all the brands, Trinity, Xray, Losi.
I believe I remember hearing Associated is 5-10wt thicker than Trinity and 5wt thicker than Losi, but never a comparison to Orion or exact numbers.

My suggestion would be to stick with what you know. You are correct in comparing Associated to Trinity and Losi.
Since you know how Associated, Losi and Trinity run weight wise, stick with one one those three brands and don't worry about the others.

Or just use oil that makes your car. Say if you have a Tamiya use Tamiya shock oil. A losi car use losi shock oil. Cause if you try to use a setup and u use differnt company shock oil it could be different.

I was just trying to get a comparison between oils, I only use AE oil but some times I check some setup sheets and see Orion or other oils and wondered how they compared.
I remember Bass boat being on here listed some comparisons for the Xray oil, but looking for more info.
