Default E-Truggy Differential and Shock oil Questions

Just got a used RC8T techno v4 conversion with a castle 1518 1800kv motor/MMM and i wanted to know your suggestions for diff and shock oils! I run on a medium sized open track made of i would say 50% dirt 50% clay.

Since the weight is moved more forward on the Tekno conversion kit i would use heavyer oil in the front shocks 37w and 35w in the rear seems to work good for me on my RC8TCE.

Diff oil about 7,10,3 7,10,4, 7,10,5 main thing is to run at least 10k in the center diff to help with balloning on the front tires. The diff oil really depends on what your driving is than the track surface really ive noticed.
