The title says it all.

Your Balldiff grease of choice for modified.

I need some grease that gives lots of grip but still makes it possible to have the diff pretty loose.

Its a xray T1 Fk05 it has according to the manual a extra solid diff. ceramic balls and all that.

Schumacher works very well.
There is also a new one from Denmark that Marc Rheinard uses which should be very good, can't remember the name, but if you contact Toni, I am sure he can help http://www.tonisport.de/

The clear Associated tube with red writing. Too bad my bd5 diff feels horrible after one run, although freshly built the diffs feel so smooth with the use of the asso. diff lube.

Schumacher grease. It's pretty much the best for the money.

Grease, not oil. Search for "Schumacher Diff Lube".

That is a list of diff oils for onroad/offroad gas cars with gear diffs.
You need to look for ball diff grease.
