What oil do you use in your shocks?

When I have been looking at Shock oil the numbers are like 4.2. What kind of oil are people using for shocks?

Silicone shock oil. 4.2 is a weird designation, it's usually in wt (20-30-etc) or CST (rougly 10x more, but not linear).

Anyone got a recommendation for a better gear set out of the transmission, just grounded mine done to nothing.

Manual says gear set, to be more specific it is the middle gear in the trans. Is that idler gear?

I may also do what I will call "stages" to how I would go about upgrading.

Keep in mind that "bulletproof" isn't a 100% reality as with big power you can still blow up parts, especially wear items (like bearings and gears) over time. This is just what I consider the best available options. There are also options for larger pieces that I will often ignore as my goal is almost always to maintain the Wraiths appearance.

Each post will be on a specific area of the truck. So I'll get started with the typing now. Check back later.

This is what you need. Find this stuff. The model is an older one and support in the aftermarket is fading.

Exactly and not a whole lot has changed.

Anything GH on the original list is probably hard to find these days but they were minor things anyway. STRC and Hot Racing still make equivalent bearing caps and I would go for the Vanquish 1 piece servo mount these days over what is on the original list.

https://www.rpphobby.com/product_p/vps07970.htm

The biggest change is that bushings on the inner pinion bearing is no longer the best option for big power. More than a few companies offer axle housings with larger 5x13 or 5x14 inner bearings that hold up way better. I believe all of Vanquish's AR60 axle housings have been upgraded to the larger inner bearing as well as SSD's AR60 housings and Dlux offers the stock housings modded for a larger inner bearing as well.

Well, maybe you guys can help, because trying to upgrade without links can get expensive. I ordered the Axial 32P spur and pinion as recommended. But they aren't going to work with the current slipper. Do I need to replace the entire slipper assembly to upgrade? Or did I get the wrong spur gear? (no holes for bolts).
