Shock oils, I personally use Team Associated and I know a lot of other people do too. I usually used 60wt front and 50wt rear, though my track is huge and has pretty high traction.

Diff Oils, I used something around 30,000wt to 50,000wt oil in the front and 10,000wt in the rear. Again, this is because I race on a large, high traction track. If your track is smaller then you might wanna lower the weights to something like 10,000wt front and 5,000wt rear to give you more turn in.

Tyres, I use foams on my EVO because basically to be competitive I have to. However with my V-One S I have used Kyosho and Take-Off rubbers with some success. Again, it depends where you run your car... let me know this so I or someone else can point you in the right direction.

They are very very different, if you were to put diff oil in your shocks then they would hardly work and move, as it is extremely thick. IF you put shock oil in your diffs they would be very loose and that wouldnt benifit you much.

To tell the difference between shock oil and diff oil is simple: diff oil is always rated in the thousands(1000wt or say 50000wt) and shock oils are in then tens (50wt or 30 wt).

Yep associated shock oils are good, for diff oils i use mugen seiki oils, ryan or someone else would be best to answer the other questions you got there.

There's a lot of questions here ! Ok... let's see....

Generally on smaller tracks you would use thinner oils so that your diff can rotate quicker, hence giving you better steering, but there are also other ways of getting more steering.

For shock oils it really does depend on the surface... if it's high/low traction, bumpy etc. If I remember correctly on larger tracks you would use thicker shock oils. Thicker oils will make the car feel more stable (usually used on high speed tracks) and thinner oils allow the car to change direction quicker.

Generally the oils will not "run out" as you put it unless there is a leak somewhere. Periodic rebuilds are also a good thing just to check the condition of the gears (in diffs) etc and to check the oil levels. The weather doesn't play a part in the selection, if it did then we'd be having more headaches than we already do !

Ok,
I think it would be easier if you just went to your track and asked around to see what they are using, so that you get a base on what settings to run then just tweak it with changes until you feel it is at its best.
As for the diff case i would say it is a waste of money, its just a bit of anodized alloy that would make that part of the car a bit stronger, and since these cars are already built like a tank then i would spend your money on maybe a different exhaust system. The SP kyosho exhaust system is really really good, check in your manual for option parts its in there.

As for the last question it would be hard to say, but i would say handling is more important. But then again driving is the most important

As sausage said, find out from people at your track. Also this site (http://go.to/solaspeed) is a good reference.

Mugen and Kyosho... all good.

Upgrades, I'd start with the blue head if you're still using the kit engine, otherwise the Kyosho SP Exhaust that sausage mentioned, the two extra spider gears in the diffs and the UM210 clutch shoes. They're about all that is necessary.

Optional diff case ... it's one of the most useless upgrades available for the V-One S.

Both speed and handling are important ... but if I had to choose one I'd choose handling.
