Default Why do truggies have heavier diff fluid than buggies?

Just a random question.

Why do truggies have heavier diff fluid than buggies?

Is it because of the larger motor (extra power)?

Mostly because of the bigger and thus heavier wheels.

they put more torque on the diff's because of increased diameter.

Also more power, and gearing set-ups.

Bigger motors, bigger moving parts, bigger tires/wheels, and also so they don't unload too much power to the front tires....
