Anyone have a link to a conversion chart for diff oils? Or do you know what the kit setup of 70-70-20 in cst converts to in wt?

I have a conversion chart for shock oils but it only goes up to 800cst which isn't too helpful when dealing with 70,000 cst.

Hahahaha this thread is too funny, obviously it was not fast enough because it lost!!! hahahaha, but the next best thing to wining the title is to start a thread in RCTech and boast about how you could have won it!!!

Hahaha, it may be a good buggy Durango, but you have lost a ton of street cred claiming that crap!!! Take the loss on the chin like a man and not a screaming little girl!!!

I have a conversion chart for shock oils but it only goes up to 800cst which isn't too helpful when dealing with 70,000 cst.
Rule of thumb for conversion is from cst to wt is to knock a zero off the end, so 70,000cst is 7000wt.

"knock a zero off" - It's not a direct conversion as "cst" measures viscosity and "wt" is we think specific gravity of the oil, but its not true unit of measure. Guys who came from 10th scale often talk in "wt" most of the 8th scale companies talk in cst which is a linear and as its an official unit of measure, then perhaps more correct.

...but here come the confusing part, some oil companies don't write the units on their bottles and companies write "wt" on their bottles when mean "cst". So the bottom line is stick to the brand of oil you know or talk to other people on here to see what brand of shock oil works for them. Team Durango will make a range of oils soon, but that's the advice for now.

Tim, Sorry to hear about the problem with the pin. We will send them out free of charge as soon as we have your postal address. please let me have it ASAP. See your PM. thanks

Rui, again sorry to hear about your problems, everything has been reported on our QC log so more checks are made and it does not happen again. Please feel free to send us photos along with your postal address on [email protected] and we will get parts out to you right away.

The bad news is you guys have been unlucky - SORRY for that we will get you on track ASAP. The goods news we are getting loads of reports back on how fast and strong the car is so I'm sure you will be faster than ever very soon

Thanks Jason

My kit went together perfectly. No missing parts, no goofy parts, no problems at all. The fit and finish is awesome and the quality of the parts are up there with the best of them. Extremely pleasant build.
