Default Recommended Diff setup and shock oil - Anyone tried Trinity Shock Oil

As usual, the only shock oil available on my HS is this brand called Trinity.

Anyone tried this? Or I should get the Losi one which mean I have to order online and send over to Singapore .

Been reading that Losi is good.

What is your preferred shock oil?

For the diff oil, I'm using the OFNA, 5000 front, 3000 centre and 3000 rear. Hobao Hyper Star buggy manual recommended 1000 for the rear but it looks way too soft for me. What do you guys think?

We don't really have a proper track here but the track that we use is hard, dusty and bumpy!

Thanks in advance guys.

For a buggy 5f and 3r diff setup is good for a dusty/bumpy track for the center diff 3000 is pretty light i whould use at least 5k or 7k but i whould use 7k i the center but it still depends on how you like the handling though.

Ive used trinity shock oil before it seems just as good as others i cant tell the difrence with the same weight as other brands.
