    That is perfect. Thanks! I'll try out these mods in due time. I agree the stock fluid rolls a little too much. Not all that bad for me, but some thicker oil should help the dampening.

    Thanks Peter!
    I think I can safely say that every RC I have ever owned has had it's moments of being a pain. It's an inherent trait of the hobby I believe but had not stopped me yet. :)
