Default Diff oil recommendations?

I'm running 1/8 scale buggy with front/center/rear diffs. I need a recommendation for a track with lots of slow, tight turns and a short straight. I'm currently running 3k-font, 5k-center and 500 (.5k)-rear trying to get as much steering as possible. The buggy (Mayhem Pro) came stock with (5k, 5k, 1k). While this proved to be a good compromise, it wasn't allowing enough turning on a really tight track. What's everyone else running?

3-5-2 will give you awesome steering, but will be hard to control with the 2k in the rear.

I'm new to all this! Could you explain why 2k in the rear would be hard to control? What is happening? Does 2k in the rear cause the rear to lock up too quickly when powering out of a turn causing the rear to slide out too quickly? I found some silicon diff oil at 500 wt which I put in the rear diff hoping that would keep the rear from sliding out when powering out of a turn. Is that correct?
