Default Dif fluid in a FT T4?

On the factory team T4 are they sealed diffs? Do you use diff oil or just the grease that comes with the kit?

Use the stuff that came with the kit and follow the instructions and you will have no problems.

They don't use oil (fluid) like some gear diffs to. They use ball diffs with plates and use diff lube (grease).

Has anyone ever tried to put a fluid filled diff in their 10th scale? I wonder how it would compare to a ball diff with all the tuning capabilities of different fluid viscosity.
