A basic set up on diffs is 5000wt front, 7000wt center, 1000wt rear . 70wt would very thin compared to these numbers. Are they putting the Lucas grease in the front, center, or rear diff ???
Yes, 1/8 scale setup. The Lucas grease goes in the rear diff in place of diff oil. The diff is not packed with it, only the gears are given a good coating. I've tried this and it indeed does give more steering and works great on a track with lots of tight turns. The only problem with this is that the grease needs to be changed every 4-5 races because it slings off the gears.
Sportwerks makes silicone diff oil in 100, 300, 500 and 700 wts. I was thinking that silicone shock oil would be a better solution than grease because you can fill up the diff and it would last longer than grease but still keep the effect.
