Default 1/10 TC Shock & Diff fluids* HELP*

I'm just about to start running 1/10 Nitro TC again after a 10yr break and I'm lost. Allot of things have changed since then, LOL. My last TC was the MTX3.

I got HotBodies R10 now.

I need the basics on where to start on shock and diff oils.
Kit post
500 for Shocks
300k front diff
60k rear diff

Need advice on were to go from there up or down, what weight oils to carry in my pit box to fine tune.
Also we ran one ways before, these new small diffs I understand people are running clay in them to make them spools. Is this recommended?
I have diff oil up to 500k.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Tony what's up it all depends on track, traction and weather conditions. I would start with the stock setup and go from there. I would imagine the first thing you would want to setup is engine and 2 speed then modify the chassis setup to your likings...
At my local track I run 100K in front and 40k in rear (AE oil) and 1000 in shocks. But again it all depends on track. Also the track width, camber, toe, caster are things you might wanna be happy with too...

R10 isn't bad out of the box, but try and stick to the same brand oils once you make a choice as oils aren't oils...

Talk to the guys at your local track and see what they are using and this should point you in the right direction a lot quicker.

Enjoy
Andrew

@ Joe- that's very similar to what l run in my GT8 cars. Thx

@Bundy- I only use certified shock & diff oils "PT RC RACING", I picked up 475,500,550,600,650,700 to get me started. Btw 95% of the local and regional drivers here used am Xray. Thx

Xray diffs are the same as R10, so this will be a good start.
