maybe find a different bottle to transfer the oil to. Come on now you're awesome Austin. Don't let oil kick your ass

+1 On the Ofna diff oils and the bottles are good. And have liked Losi shock oils also. Have been running them a long time .

I use Losi oils for one reason... their bottles don't have those cheap ass tops that pop off spilling fluid everywhere. I stopped using AE oils just because I hate their bottles. They constantly are leaking everywhere.

I use RB And Xray-When I can get a loan from the bank

I use RB most of the time, as you get a fair amount in it, specially for shocks.. and occasionally.. use CML-uk oils.. last resort..
Have Tried AE but they always seem out of stock, and seemed to thin up pritty fast.. Not tried Losi.. prefer RB as can get it 90% of the time.. Losi is popular.. but heard mixed on it

I have used Kyosho, Mugen, and AE fluids. With Mugen, I simply press the top (not hard just resting) on one of the cross pins, and have no problem with them coming off.

I switched to AE because of price, and, most importantly for me, they have the cst readings on the bottles too. That helped when I had my Xray, and now with my D8. I use both diff fluid & shock oils. Never had a leak problem from the bottle, or been able to tell a difference over Mugen, Kyosho, etc.

Also, like stated earlier, you go through the stuff so much (changes, cleaning, etc) that having it breakdown on me is really not an issue.

Just my $.03 (yeah, I am that important!)

Associated diff fluids have always been good for me. I like losi shock oil because it is color coordinated and if you forget or don't write down what you had you can tell very easily.

Yeah I use Mugen and Ofna for years, both are good, but when I get a new Mugen bottle, I pop off the cap and put a little CA glue on it and they never come off after that. But before I figured that out, I did dump 7000wt all over the dang place several times.

Losi shock oil is the best, what I always use.

Maybe it's so you don't try and eat it. I use Mugen for diffs and Losi for shocks. I hold my Mugen bottles so my pinky is free to rest on the side of the cap, so it doesn't pop off.

As long as you pick a brand and stick with it, you're fine.
