Default Geerdiff oil thickness ?


I've looked everywhere online but all I've found is conflicting answers. Does thicker oil in a geardiff at the rear make the car rotate less and give you more grip out of the corner or the opposite

Why you don't test this on your local track ?

one run u use 1000wt, second run u use 3000wt and you have your answer. Or you wanna different answers here, too ?

Try it for yourself!

Changed from 1000wt oil to 25wt shock oil. Car rotates much better. Currently running 30wt oil on carpet and loving it.
