Hey all from those of you running PT racing oils in your mp9's, I feel like they are a little thicker that what the oil conversion chart mentions on there website. Thoughts?

Thanks bro. With all the servos that are making 300+ oz of torque its hard to know if a wimpy mid 100's oz of torque can do the job.

Yeah I think I might. As long as it isn't a mud fest.

Not at all, they seem spot on with what there labeled and the most consentient oils we have ever run. Plus you can get them in any weight for fine tuning. example 375,400,425,450 etc.

Yeah I had to wrap my head around it too. My friend ran 10+ gallons last year with a Savox 1251MG low profile (125oz) and 1258TG (167oz) in his MP9 with no issues. This setup saves at least 30 grams over my higher torque steel gear servos in my E buggy and truggy.

I remember 4-5 years ago when we ran 175oz servos for steering in truggy and we got by just fine!

Default Springs

I see most people are using all light blues or an orange/light blue combination as far as springs are concerned. I want to be prepared for pretty much anything I may run into as far as spring rates are concerned. I do indoor clay, and a full season of outdoor at 6 different tracks. Would it be a waste to buy a set of every rate Kyosho makes, or just stick with the most popular, and if that then which ones?

That would be a waste IMO. Orange and lt blue for the rear and orange, lt blue and gray for the front should be sufficient for just about any situation.

edit* I'm liking the lt blue front, orange rear combo for most situations right now. Seems balanced.

I have a quick question. All other adjustments being the same, which would give more off power steering, front upper arm inserts in the H or L position? I'm thinking the H position but I'm questioning myself.

According to this chart, there should be white between grey and lt blue. Why aren't you suggesting white, or why isn't anyone using this spring rate?

Short Length 70mm Shock Spring Specifications:

Softer
IF350-814: Green - 8 turns/1.4 wire (3.68lb-in / 659.38 n/m)
IF350-7514: Orange - 7.5 turns/1.4 wire (4.02lb-in / 719 n/m)
IF350-714: Light Blue - 7 turns/1.4 wire (4.42lb-in / 6.09 n/m)
IF350-1016: White - 10 turns/1.6 wire (4.62lb-in / 820 n/m)
IF350-6514: Gray - 6.5 Turns/1.4 wire (4.91lb-in / 879.17 n/m)
IF350-916: Purple - 9 turns/1.6 wire (5.28lb-in / 937.39 n/m)
IF350-816: Light Green - 8 turns/1.6 wire (6.16lb-in / 1093.62 n/m)
