    Oil weight

    Hi guys so I decided to change the oil weight in my shocks because one time when it rolled one of the shock caps came off and now I need to refill it with new oil so decided to change al 4 shocks oil setup. What oil weight do you guys recommend? Should I change springs also? If I should change both what do you guys recommend?
    I mainly drive on road and some bashing in dirt, and sometimes little jumps not anything crazy.

    Can't speak for the rally but I like TLR (Team Losi Racing) 35wt for the rear and 30wt for the front in my slash 2wd. But be sure to seal the shock oil tight... it gets EVERYWHERE
    I'm not cheating! I'm just using my resources!

    What about gtr shocks? Also springs.

    Xo1 fronts feel way too stiff.
