I just wanted to see what the stock fluids are for comparison with what I am running now, I know that information is sketchy at best with every brand of pre built or semi pre built rc car. And YES the clutch is a thing of wonder. Those giant white shoes can take a ton of abuse and stays consistent all day. Not only can you coax it to upshift for smooth infeild driving, you can touch the brakes slightly and let it downshift and then rpm match it for big sweepers and if an upshift is in order coming out of a turn, the shift is so smooth that it doesnt upset the chassis and you dont need to lift or compensate for sudden wiggles.

PM "R2", I'm sure he'll know. He is DJ, who is the lead tech at Ofna now...

I should know, but I always recommend changing it out right off the bat, so I don't feel it's needed for me to know. Plus I honestly haven't heard what's in them...

pardon me for the possibly stupid question. when you say 2k and 1k for the shocks, are you reffering 2000 wt. diff oil?

That is correct. I thought the same thing when they suggested putting diff oil in the shocks. I just seems that with the weight of the car and the amount of roll you get on a high bite track the thicker oils really settle the car down a bunch. of course you could always plug one of the two holes in the stock shock pistons with a set screw and almost achieve the same thing. I am running 3k in the front shocks and 1k in the rear. hope this helps and have fun!!!
