Is there any benefit to running shock pistons with more/bigger holes and thicker shock oil versus less/smaller holes and thinner fluid? My guess is that I should run pistons that allow me to be roughly in the middle of shock oil weights so that I have more/easier adjust-ability at the track where I can relatively quickly change out oil and not have to change out pistons. How do you guys typically decide on shock pistons?

I only use Custom Works shocks, so my answer is based on my experience with their piston hole sizes. I typically use the medium pistons although for a while I was playing with the large holed pistons. The medium holes seem to work fine with oil weights in the 30-50 range, meaning you can accomplish what you need with that weight range. The large holed piston needs a higher range oil of course. I was using the larger holes for a couple of years but have gone back to the mediums just to have more consistency between my cars and not have to carry so many oils with me.
