Default Associated diff oil.

Why is it so much less than other brands!? Anyone know? I always ran ofna but got tired of paying 8 bucks a bottle so I got Associated because its only 3 bucks a bottle. Not sure if there's any quality or consistancy difference but the price is good

i cant say if one is better than the other but i change my diffs all the time and fluid is expensive to change all the time i run the ae oil for diffs and losi oil for shocks
imo the ae is fine

A better question is why are the other brands so expensive. Ive been using the AE stuff for years and its just as good as any other brand out there.

its all in the name thats what you pay for even though it doesnt mean its any better that its more expensive.

but really even though the ofna diff oil is more you get a bigger bottle and the oil is pretty thick and it has a good cap.

Dude thickness will matter on weight of oil not brand

but also weights change a little from brand to brand, what ever brand you go with stick with it

Yes but they will be very close, it will very slightly from brand to brand but not like 5k in losi is 20k in ae. you can tell a difference between brands if you do back to back testing.
