Default Losi 2.0 T diff wt fluid recommendations

Im currently running RTR which I believe is grease filled.Id like to go to oil filled on all 3 diffs.

Whats a good combo running on a tight track where I can have more pull through the front wheels.
Currently rear wheels are breaking out .

I run 7K front 10K center and 2K rear
if you use that and the car is a little taily use 3K in the rear instead
alot of people run 3K in the read but im finding that the car rotates into the corner betwer with 2K in the rear

Wouldn't it be better to go lighter in the center diff if the truck was tail happy, diverting more power to the front wheels? I've read by going heavier in the rear you decrease traction while cornering.

I have the same 2.0 8T RTR and here's what I did as the truck can get very loose in the rear with that 454 engine. (it's an animal, tons of power). Soften the clutch and use 2 composite shoes and 2 aluminum shoes. Steel flywheel helps also. Make your rear camber link as long as you can, this helps a TON. Also, I dialed in about 15% exponential on throttle, this helped smooth out the throttle response as well.

Finally, I'm pretty sure it comes with fluid in the diffs, not grease.
