Default Muggy Diff oil question

I am certainly not a newcomer to RC or Nitro, however my Muggy is the first car I own that has three diffs. The track I run on is fairly hard compact dirt, but can be quite dusty at times. So for the most part not a hulluva lot of traction. The book doesn't go much into stock diff oil weights, so I am not sure what the weight of the stock oil is. I am pretty happy with the stock set up, but at time I feel not enough power is going to the rear wheels (which I assume means I need a thicker oil in the center diff to transfer more power to the rear wheels). So basically I am asking you guys for some advice and help me save some trial and error. If I knew what the stock weight was it would be easier to have a starting point, but I don't even know that.

I used 7F,10C,5R and 49tooth spur gear. It will run any truggy.

I built this one for my dad.

Nice Muggy. Maybe its just me, but it doesn't seem to be to a very popular truck. Love mine, and I see you put the Truggy tiers on it as well. Found it handles much better with the Truggy tiers.
