Exclamation needing some info on DIFFERENTIAL oils

hey all,
i tried to search for the difference between differential oil brands. Some use CST some WT. im sure there are some differences between the two units of measurement, but i am mainly looking for comparison between brands.

Is there like a chart or a conversion factor that i can use.

i can only find charts for shock oils, not differential oils.

thanks

Never seen one for diff oils but there are a few around for the shock oils

Are you trying to find a specific weight or are you looking at changing the brand you use

changing brands mate. i've been using AE diff oils all this while and only just today did i realize that AE uses CST while losi uses WT. i just want to know how far the difference is between the two viscosity.

setup wise im using Drake standard setup 7k, 10k, 2k in me truggy. unfortunately (or not) i've been using AE diff oils as they were cheaper.

anyone know what that setup translate to in WT?

go to...

twf8.ws

they have done scientific testing on all major brands and they are comparable in charts. they also have a write up about the different scales of viscosity.

look under tips then cars then shock oil

Here's another that measures different brands as the weight carries from brand to brand.

I recently switched to PT oils and they have been phenomenal.
Here is a chart from them
