    Silicon Oil?

    Got my Revo 3.3 RTR a couple weeks ago and have been having a blast.

    It came with some air filter oil and a bottle of clear oil labeled "Silicon Oil".

    There's no mention of this Silicon Oil in the Manual. I'm guessing it's shock oil but I also considered that it may be some kind of after run oil.

    I thought I'd ask here just to be sure.

    Can anyone confirm this oil's use?

    Thanks.

    The silicone oil is for filling the oil reservoir on the shocks. Helps keep them lubricated
