I'm currently using the Xray oils, but when I run out of them I will replace them with Capricorn oils because I like the bottles Capricorn uses.

The standard setup advices 120K in the front and 70K in the rear, these oils along with 550cst are supplied with the kit, and this should work pretty well on a medium to high traction track. The entire standard setup is actually really good.
When you're running on a low traction, parking lot style track I would advice going softer in the rear diff, around 30K-40K, to prevent the rear breaking loose.

My webshop is currently online and fully operational: http://capricornrc.nl
However I don't think it's very attractive to order in Europe since all of our prices are higher plus the shipping is pretty expensive.

But if you do, I will happy to help you out.

Ok, great to hear the advice is working out.

If anyone else has questions regarding setup or anything in general about the Lab or Capricorn, don't hesitate to ask.

Thankx DS.

What you guys think about using a LIPO with no reg?

The ones using this setup here tell me there is no need for a reg. I am kinda afraid.

Will use the Airtronics FHSS 3 receptor and two Fut 9551.
