The difference between "50" wt oil and "60" wt oil means that the 60 is going to be thicker and slower for the shock to go up into the body.

No, not usually. Thicker weight shock oil works for, say, a track with alot of jumps. Your car won't be as "springy". Likewise if the track is smooth. Thinner oil will soak up little bumps better. It's all track conditions.

I would go with about 35 weight. Just because if you go with something lighter you won't be able to keep the tires stuck to the ground. They will hop around and spin out.

i use 40 in all my cars and it works perfect for everything. i romp around in the grass, i race, and i launch my car at the local jumps. i would go with 35 or 40.

On T3's with stock pistons, 30wt seems to be plenty stiff.
