Default Info on Shock oil please !

I am a (UK based) newbie at Rock Crawling
I have purchased a low cost HG-P402 chassis kit as a starting point,
and also some new shock absorbers for it.

The shocks I understand are not supplied filled with oil, what oil
would people recommend - I have been looking at this from HobbyKing . . .


I understand that the "450cst" refers to the thickness of the oil -
could somebody tell me where I can get info on "cst" ratings and
what thickness I should use in my rock crawler shocks.

Axials seem to come with 35 weight oil, and it's good starting point. Ranges from 0 weight, no resistance. All the way up to like 1,000,000 weight diff grease that's so limited slip it's close to locker.

Small number thinner, shock moves faster. Big number thicker, shock moves slower.
