Yes - I'm pretty sure you shouldn't use the brown on the diff balls. It must be an oversight leaving it out of the XXXCR kit...

The only grease that should be used on the actual diff balls/plates is clear silcone grease--like the Associated stuff. Losi supplies the opaque white grease for the thrust bearings, but the black Associated stuff is better as it has moly in it (hence the black color) which is a good extreme pressure lubricant.
Do not use the clear grease on your thrust bearing, the thrust bearing will not last very long that way. My Bk2 came with a tube of the clear diff grease, I am surprised the new Losi's don't. And using the opaque or black grease on your diff balls will make it impossible to tighten the diff down enough not to slip. Those greases are too slippery for diff use.
I have always used the black Associated grease on the thrust bearings, and some clear Associated grease for the diff balls.

my last kits came with diff grease, but i just use the AE grease, its like a dollar a tube and it last for lots of diff rebuilds.
