I wouldn't overthink this, the only real difference will be price and the CST or WT. CST and WT values aren’t directly comparable from brand to brand, so it’s good to stick to one brand for consistency.

I usually go for Team associated oil because theres a good variety of weights and its usually in stock at RPP or Amain.

I found some Traxxas oil in 30wt which is what I want, and I like its long nose filler tube, so what your saying is it doesnít really matter when it comes to Silicone shock oil .. just get what you can get?

Exactly, shock oil is shock oil. As long as it's silicone it doesn't matter what brand it is.

I've used Traxxas, Gmade, Axial (all 30wt) in the past and I keep a few different grades of the Team Associated (30-80wt) stuff around because that's what my local shop carries.

The only thing I’d recommend is if you’re wanting to really fine tune with specific weights, then to stick to one brand. Only becuase the ratings can be a little inconsistent between each. Otherwise there’s not much of a reason I’m aware of to lean towards any one brand. I tend to stick with team associated or losi, mostly Losi, as it seems to be commonly available.

I use team associated. Its made by Lucas and has the conventional weight and centistroke measurement right on it. I stock between 35 and 80w in 5w increments, both because I have a small fleet to attend to, and I like tinkering and tuning.
