Corally for me. I've always felt the tamiya grease to be too light, especially for the lower turn motors. For the thrust bearings, associated black grease.

I think the temp might have a lot to do with what grease works best.

I wasn't kidding so keep your anger in check. Astroglide and other personal lubricants are just silicon based lubes that are less concentrated. I prefer the lighter layer they put on the rings when used with ceramic diff balls.

The reason why I like the Schumacher lube over AE is because of its thickness. What I mean is this.....at home I built two rear diffs one with AE lube and the other with Schumacher lube. Left them on my work station standing on it's side and went to work for the day. The house was just at regular room temperature all day. (not too hot and not too cold) When I got home and checked them the AE diff had a little leakage that had run down the out drive and the Schumacher oil didn't show sign of run off. Both diffs were still silky smooth but my thought was if the Schumacher lube stayed in the diff in room temperature then on the hot black top it should be a little better than the AE lube. Just my opinion.

I'm in agreement with Clint about Schumacher diff lube. Weylin Rose had me try some and it's by far the best diff lube I've ever come across. It's not as liquid like in viscosity, nor does it separate like weird peanut butter.

When in the diff it feels very similar to Associated silicone diff lube (red letters on the tube). So it's just a hair thicker than the associated stealth diff lube (one with black letters on the tube).

Like Clint mentioned, it holds up really well in the heat. I know he runs mainly asphalt, and sees much higher track temps than I ever have up here in rainy Washington, but it sure helps in the foam tire carpet racing I do. We put a huge load on the diffs on carpet with foam tires, so it's really important to have a diff lube that will still hold when the diff heats up.

Fred is the diff king. With his products I have had the best and longest lasting diffs I have ever felt.

I absolutely agree with what has been said about the shumacher grease.

But have you bought any latelly? I ask this because i think they changed the formula or something. And the latest grease hasnt impressed me like the original one...

Tamiya Ball Diff Grease on the diff balls and Tamiya Molybond Grease on the thrust, I find the antiwear grease lets things get a bit hotter than the Molybond does as it's a lot thicker, works well on the CVD's though!

Honestly I haven't. I have 18 bazillion tubs of the corally diff grease from when I ran for them, so that's what I've been using. It is also a pretty solid diff grease, just use it sparingly.

Easily overlooked but very good and easy to get. This stuff is great in a mod diff. Won't over heat and break down.
