He's a blur to me too....

Nobody up here can beat him...at least I've never seen it.

That will make Bill's day as he got him on our track. Chris ran second on a new layout that is bigger then he's used to and outdoors.

Check out my post and pics from a previous post. Mine.is mounted on the front shock tower.

Thanks in advance.

Good luck getting an answer to this question. Theres many on here
asking for an answer to this almost daily and they never get an answer.

I mount mine to the top plate just behind the front shock tower that covers the servo saver. There's an unused hole where the 810 body mount would be. I just use a screw to mount it in that spot using one of the tabs on the personal transponder.

To date I haven't seen any thing from anyone saying they can get diff silicone to feel the same as the grease. Might wanna leave the grease in. Pretty sure grease is made to last forever lol. Well at least a long time. Seems like everyone loved the stock grease on the scte, I wish I would have ran it with the grease before, first thing I did was pull the diffs apart, and changed the diff fluid. Owell at least I don't know what I missed. Not a great answer, but think it's about as good as you will get. A lot have been bugging losi to sell the grease after market, and they said they would look into it. So keep your fingers crossed I guess.

There is no 'match' for this and I've yet to hear a shout out from Ryan or Casper as to any availability to the grease. I agree 100% the grease has an awesome feel and is my first choice to run for the front and center. I will say a 2k diff oil is great in the rear and top pick.

The closest I can find to a similar feel to the stock grease is a 3k 3k for the front and center. So total would be 3,3,2..

I honestly think it's more like a 4k feel so if you wanted to mix a 3 and 5k bottle for a custom blend and run 4,4,2 I think you would get as close to the grease as you can w/ oils... still not the same but close. This setup does work great, I don't like 5k in any of them and would go w/ 3k given the choice... I run on some high bite and med bite tracks too and still would take 3k over 5k in the front and center.

Rear always seeems best on 2k

my 2c hope it helps get you going.

More like 10-10-10....I thought the grease was horrible, thick and nasty. It also causes increased motor and ESC temps.....changed mine out to 5-5-3, dropped 30 degrees and handles much better.

The top few in sc 4x4 are lucky if they can stay on the same lap as him. Tyler and I run mid 17. Chris A is running 16s!!! Can't touch him... He's just as fast with his 1/8 as his sc.

Not even close to 10/10/10 ;P Granted I've run 2k oil in the rear from early on, but I've run both ways now and my motor temps were actually lower on the stock grease and I had slightly faster lap times. So I guess you have some data to back those claims up with some trials LOL

Don't have time to compile data.....same indoor track, same layout, same motor and ESC set-up.....175degrees with grease 140's when I changed to 5-5-3. As far as handling, the grease pushed like crazy and didn't rotate well through the corners. The grease is definately thicker than my current set-up of 5-5-3. Maybe I'm one of the lucky souls that received a better truck...lol...I switched out my pins after 3 packs....40-50 packs on it before I did diff rebuild and everything looks perfect....no wear on my blocks, gears like new and it's smooth as butter.

The problem I found running the grease was it would change after it heated up, the lube seems to stay consistant.
