    Monster slash 4x4 oil questions

    My monster slash is 8.00lbs flat. I have xo1 diffs and gtr shocks (everything is also upgraded ). I am running 70wt shock oil in my gtr shocks and 100k diff oil in my diffs. I bash, do speed runs, go in the mud, and do big and little jumps . Should I make any changes to the oils to get even better performance? Or is the oils I have in it fine.

    Do you have a center diff, or a slipper clutch? How much jumping are you doing with the truck, and if so, are they big jumps? Do you have the smaller shocks up front and larger ( longer) shocks in the rear? What wheels and tires are you running?

    using a revo slipper clutch, I take it to one location to jump and it jumps around 10-15 ft, small shocks up front and long ones in the back, both shocks have vg racing springs, and proline 2.8 trenchers on the f-11 rims.

    How does it perform in the situations you use it in? People over the internet can't tell you what is your perfect setup due to way too many variables.

    Rather, do you like how it is, does it perform or do something you like, or don't like?

    I think itís fine, just wanted to see if anyone recommends other set ups.

    Shock, f/r diff, and center diff oil preferences are just that... preferences. Every person you ask will have their own.

    If it works for you, stick with it.

    I think my diff oil is fine. My slash goes over bumps fine but the shocks donít soak up the impact as much as Iíd like . Should I drop from 70 tw to 50wt oil?

    Do you mean that the shocks make your rig bounce? If yes, then you can change your shock oil and/or change your spring rates.

    What shocks are you running? If you have GTR shocks, you can also modify the Revo variable valve damping kit (#5461) to tune your shocks to how you like.

    Good luck and have fun!

    I have the gtr shocks with vg racing springs. Using 70wt shock oil but thinking about dropping down to 50 wt. I have my spring preload pretty tight so thereís no drop in the vehicle. What exactly does that variable damping kit do?
