Default diff oil differences by company?

Wondering if there is a relationship between the Losi brand of diff oil and the Associated brand of diff oil. I see associated lists them in WT and Losi lists them in CS. I did read one article about compairing units and such but want real life experiences. Is the 7000 associated the same stiffness as the 7000 losi etc?

Thanks

i know with shock oils they are different, so i would think the diff fluids will be different, i wouldnt mix and match between diffs, i make sure all 3 diffs have the same brand fluid in them

yup - that is the article I read. Still confused by Losi calling it just CS.

IMO all oils are different, WT is just a number with no way to mesure.
CS or Cts(centistroke) is an accurate mesurment but even between companies it can be off.
IMO Kyosho, Mugen, AE and Xray have the best oils and are all close enough that you wont notice the diffrence between 5000cts in each brand.
OFNA and losi are in their own world when it comes to oil viscosity and their ratings.

The shock oil is different. 40wt Losi is 37.5 Associated.
