I always thought the thicker the rear diff oil the more rear traction you get?? but you say to use a thinner oil?
Yes because more traction means that the car has got more capacity to transfer the rotational force of the wheel to the ground, this obviously result in more speed exiting from the corner(in general, better acceleration). But during the corner the car is more difficult to drive because the diff work less and so the external wheel want to rotate as the internal one causing oversteering.
traction is not the grip,especially during the corners, be careful.
PS have you ever tried the spool in front?
