Default Just got my Fg MT

Well I got my Mt and my daughter loves it. Wife hates it LOL. I have a few questions though. What weight oil are you running in the shocks? (stock oil seems to heavy)
what pipe should I go with?
Thanks guys

The factory shock oil is like glue.....dump it and put in some 50/500 WT.
Also glue your tyres with NO foam inserts and drill a small 3mm hole on the inside of the rim....will make the truck less bouncy.
Best pipe is the Jetpro....lots more power but very loud.
The Samba pipe is ok....not as powerful as the Jetpro but only a bit louder than stock.

Thanks for the info, I will look into the Jet pro pipe. I already have tires and foams glued on the wheels, should I still drill out the rim ? I drill the rim on my Mad Forces after I put foams in them.

The Jetpro is supposed to be available with a silencer fairly soon according to Oneill brothers.

strange thing about the stock oil in shocks, when i 1st got my truck (about 2 weeks ago) mine also was VERY stiff, but now it seems nice & loose, before i had an hard job just to get the piston to move, but now it seems fine, but ive not had chance to even use my MB yet!

will see how it goes after ive ran it few times

btw my mrs also didnt like mine when it came, her 1st words were "where the f*%k you going to store it!" tbh i was suprised at the size of it

To keep mrs sweet i let her choose the decals for the body! .. well, i gave her a choice of 3 then she picked 1!

but my kidz like it, altho my daughter says im just a big kid, so i calmly relied "this is not a toy....its a big boys toy"

I wouldnt drill a hole in the rim if you have foam tyre inserts.
If any water gets in there it will unbalance the wheel and never dry out.

Yea, I was wondering if people change out the shock oil to make it handle better.
