Http:// Doing maintenance for your oil-filled big bore shocks? Why not take this opportunity to tune your shock absorber’s performance by selecting a suitable shock oil viscosity? The usual range goes from 10wt – 100wt silicone, namely 10wt for minimum dampening of spring compression, 100wt makes little way for compression and hence is more for touring car use. Off road RC hobbyists generally go for low-mid range silicone oil for livelier suspension handling. Increasingly, racers have started putting thicker oils in the front than the rear to help handle those hard and un-planned nose-first landings. If your vehicle is well powered and has a higher CG, you may experience wheelies or backflips when going heavy on throttle. You can counter this by thickening the oil in the rear shocks to prevent your vehicle from sitting back too much.
