I am not familiar with O' lube but our Eureka Lube was made for 1/8th scale diffs. You only need a little...4 dabs on the ring gear. Many pros are using it.

Don't use the OD "O" lube on your diffs...I do use "O" lube on pivot points like, hinge pins, sway bar pivot balls, rod ends, and such..... for diffs i would use a thin grease like Eureka lube,, or don't use any..

Mobil 1 is VERY thick, and will create heat. Before i found TKO's Eureka lube i ran it dry without a prob... The lube just helps promote a smoother ride, with less resistance/drag. don't use the "O" lube on ur diffs.

+1 on mobil one grease, Its only like 9 bucks and it last you problay 10 years. I just use a little on the ring and pinion gear and out drives, and the pins on the universals

I use Tamiya's ceramic grease on the diff gears. I'm pretty sure it's just lithium grease.

I use Finish Line teflon dry lube on my CV's.

CVD's defiantly "O" Lube! "O" lube is a wax lube, and won't attract dirt, just like a Teflon dry lube. Grease will attract dirt, and do more harm than good.
