Default front diff not pulling

Last week, after a couple of months of racing, I broke my first part on my SCTE, I caught a pipe stake at speed and broke a front control arm. No problem, just go to Speedy Bills RC and pick up a replacement. The truck has really handled great untill now and I had no reason to change anything. While I was working on the truck I decided to go ahead and change all the diff fluids and shock fluids. Well after installing some carbon fiber shock towers, aluminum diff braces, the front control arms, putting 5000 wt fluid in the front and center diffs, 3000 in the rear and putting 30 wt oil in the shocks, I put it all back together. I also went with the gold springs up front and silver on the rear, instead of black all the way around as before. Now when going around the high bite sweeper turn at speed the truck doesnt seem to pull from the front end as much as it used to. Before I could be sliding sidways and hit the gas and it would just power the front end whichever way the front tires were pointed. Now when I hit the gas the back end just comes around. I switched back to the black springs and it didnt help. I dont know what diff fluid was in it before as I bought the truck off of an individual here on RCTECH. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

sounds like maybe a thinner fluid was in the center before. maybe 3000?

Ya the AKA's are really, really good. Foams are great and compounds wear great also. I have tried other brands and will only use aka'a now. If you haven't tried them, give enduros(outdoor), gridirons(indoor) a shot.

Hitec 7955 ti gr digital core less!This servo has like 300 oz of torque with speed at 15 sec.The speed is not super fast but this is a 6+ lb truck If you need 8-12 sec speed than this is not for you!That said on a dirt track bumping into other 6 lb trucks and running fat SC tires do I need more speed?Do you get the same speed when all 6 lbs is on the ground trying to turn? Dunno? Just seems way more torque to me makes sense

Enduros have always been my favorite tires.

Actually indoors I like the stock SC10 tires lol. They hookup once wore a little and the track is smooth.

This is on stock SC10 tires.

Well, I know, and it's a stock chassis, but it looks rad.
