Yr Ebuggy is heavier so I think going higher is fine. 550 is fine IMO.

Default 50cm (20in) drop test VRP GC MBX8 eco

~50cm (20in) drop test with my Mugen MBX8 eco using VRP game changer 6x1.3 pistons with 350cst(r) and 463cst(f). Temperature was about 20 deg C when testing.
Car was nice and plush with regard to low speed damping and slightly softer than my previous setup with 5x1.4 regular pistons and similar oil. High speed damping or "pack" was significantly improved. In the test it just barely touches in the front.
I started out with slightly lower weight oils than recommended in this thread because outside temperature often is in the 10 deg C range at this time of the year (usually drive late at evenings). Looking forward to test the car (mid week I think)

The test is filmed in slow motion but I could not get youtube to recognise this.... It is possible to adjust the speed in the video settings (down to 0.25x) but the frame rate will of course be lower than with propper slow motion....
