Default Gear diff pushes ?

Hi,

I've been running a gear diff (spec.r) 1000cst oil in the rear of my T3 2011 for ages now but tried my ball diff today and the car is so much better to drive through the corners and into them but it's all the maintance The gear diff is good when it holds oil but the car pushes to much. Any suggestions ? also got a gear diff to try in the front.

Thanks.

just try some thinner oil in the diff. i started with 1000w as most people seem to recomend, but same as you my 2011 pushed badly on power out of hairpins
went to 800w and all was fixed
