    50 may be a bit thick, depending what size holes you have on your pistons, usually people use anywhere from 25 to 40 for racing.

    Mostly trial and error until you get a good feel

    Mugen oils are imo the best. For shocks 400cst/350cst mugen in front and 350cst/300cst mugen rear. This isnt weight but cst. Then for diffs a good base set up is 5,7,3
