Default Hmm

I haven't noticed the Associated breaking down, but I have heard other racers on rc tech say that it does. I do like Mugen and kyosho and ofna too.

Viscosity does vary a bit between brands as mentioned.

I guess I can adjust my shocks better with Associated because I know exactly what it does after so many years using it.

For the diffs it seems that the associated is a bit thinner compared to Mugen and Kyosho, and OFNA is in the middle, so with the bigger bottles and dead on middle in the thickness dept, OFNA sounds pretty good....

There are several brands to choose from, even newer brands, so why not try different brands and see.

Xray is pretty exact about their stuff so the oil is probably closer to the label, I did think that it was similar to the Kyosho and Mugen, fairly thick, so there may be a reason those brands are more expensive, and been using the cst rating longer....but I don't Diff-erentiate, couldn't help it..... between brands when I set my car up. Still 5-7-3 whatever brand I use, so I guess it depends on how perfect you want your car.
