I almost fill it. Add some, assemble the diff and try turning it. If it gets easier to turn after a few revolutions, you need to add more.

I added putty, closed the diff and rotated it to spread it around, reopened and added more. Probably did that 3 times until it was very full.

Putty is considerably heavier than even 500,000cst oil.

Rear diff, 500cst-2,000cst depending on the track, tires, and conditions.

Generally, thicker is for high traction.

Just bought a used tc6.2 that came with a front diff, it has 2.5 million weight oil in it based on the sellers comments to me. His advice was to use it on a high traction track, otherwise the spool may be a better way to go.

I've just set the car up with electronics and will give it some track time on Saturday, if I have anything to add I'll revisit this thread.

I tried 500,000 with foams and it gave a lot of steering, way too much to drive a consistent race.

I am on 50,000 now and its a comfortable amount.
