Default Nitro Buggy shock oil

Hi, i have a RC8 that i just bought a couple of weeks ago and i was wondering what a good suspension set up is for track surfaces and also for bumpy surfaces. i have the original 50wt in the front and 40wt in the back. I have the feeling its a bit too stiff on the front but since its my first 1/8 buggy im not sure..

Thank you.

for a bumpy track i would say 35 front ,30 rear or 40 f,35 r, a smooth track you can use i would say 50 f,45f, 40 r oils. it says for the basic setup on a losi eight 35 f ,35 r but i think i would go with 40f 35 r for me.u can either go with a softer spring in the rear or back off the preload to make it softer
