Default 1/8 Scale Diff Oils

Hello, just got a 1/8 buggy. What are common diff oil weights to keep in the tool box?

15, 10, 7, 5, 3

10,7,5 if you want the bare minimum.

What Zerodefect stated

No need to go crazy with the diff oil selection. Stick close to what the manual may say, and a good idea is to look at the online setting sheets, to see what others are running in your chassis.

Diff oil is a very good tuning option, so if your running at different tracks you may need a good selection. Also remember temperature, as the summer gets hotter, diff oil acts the same way like shock oil.
