Used to but that's when I was a noob. IMO that weight us kind of high. Also check your manual as it may have the recommended oil.

Its a great basher but not the best racer. If you have 30,000 on hand go ahead and fill it up. It will defiantly handle better than with it locked.

well couldnt i just twist the screw on the diff in a little bit because if u owned a lx one then u would know that all the diffs have a screw you can twist in to act as the same way diff oil would, and why isint it a good racer.

I never messed with the diffs on that buggy, but just fill it up with diff fluid.

Hmmm... your local hobby shop said you don't need diff oils?

Find a new shop.

Interestingly, no one raised the true question yet, even after 3 pages of posts.

Why the heck do 8th scale 4WD cars need 3 diffs, when the 10th scale guys just do with two, or even one and a oneway or spool at the front? And don't tell me 10th scalers are "toys" when 8th scalers are "proper racecars"... anyone who's seen or experienced 10th scale mod 4wd knows they just rip...

I'm wondering to the same thing. I just finished making a oneway bearing integrated into the front drive cup off the center diff, so it'll still have front braking, but the oneway will still work off power, but I've yet to try it out

I am not really sure why, but I would think it was all tried and tested before the 3 diff versions were released, after all less diffs mean less manufacturing expenses, and cheeper final costs to the consumer

so do yall think that theres not much of a point in a center diff.

I think there is and there isint because if your on road then your gonna want to lock it, vice versa

I've never owned an On-Road but I doubt they have locked center diffs. it would kill all the handling drastically.
