What shock oil to use for 1/5 scale FG onroad sedan RC?
« on: May 03, 2013, 06:25:42 PM »
I've got a 1/5 scale FG onroad sedan and wanted to know what shock oil to use. I'm not racing but just bashing in parking lots with it. It's got a 30cc engine and the alloy shocks.

Any help would be greatly appreciated since I am getting varying oil weights in the thousands from different sites.

you really need to get the fg oils. 7000 front and 4000 rear is what most start with. nothing else is going to work well, those work out to be something like 330wt and 260wt.

i know of a guy in mission who has a lot of fg 1/15 scale stuff for sale. he was trying to distribute fg and lauterbacher in the late 90s and early 2000s. i bought a lot of stuff from him a couple years back, im not sure if he has anything left or if it all went on ebay.
