Just wondering what brand / weight gear diff oil people are using in the rear.

When i built the kit i used the 700 that comes with the kit and the car has been awesome at my local track.

Changed to Associtated 1000CST diff oil and the car seemed really inconsistent

Anyone know if the 700 that comes with the kit is the YS700 Super blend silcone oil?

Running on low to medium grip carpet by the way...

I've used ae 70wt, X-ray 2k and ptrc 2k. I never used any of the kit fluids because I knew I would most likely not be buying anymore of them. I'm going to ae 2k tomorrow.

I have 1 diff ae 1000 and another ae 2000.
Tried one after another the 2000 I found kept the car more planted a little less rotation, but much more drive out of corners without the push.
I have not changed my o'rings on the outputs yet, but found my rear diff had leaked the ae 1000. Ae 2000 still inside the diff so no leaky.
I was always told the harder or tighter rear diff u can have with sacrificing on power under steer the better as u get the most forward drive.
I will be replacing the 1000 wt oil with 3000 to try just to see if that's too far but we shall see.
P.s I only use ae oils as I feel the best and most consistent.

Gonna try the AE 2000 next meeting, seems most of the setups run 2000 oil anyway. I always use AE shock / diff oils so got plenty to choose from

Also got graphite suspension components to try

I have carbon front hubs at the moment on purely for kingpin n ball stud thread strength, I do have full carbon to go on I might try, unsure yet as the car feels very good without.
Maybe I'll run 1st run as it is, 2nd with 3000 wt in the rear diff, then if I like with 3000 try the carbon or go back to 1st run set up for the 3rd and try as the grip will pick up so will get the feeling of the car again then try the carbon on the 4th run.
I also just got my core Rc shock piston hole drill kit I would like to run the shocks at 1.1 as this is what I've always run. I will only have 4 qualie and 2 finals this weekend to try. My club nights are too quick to do any major changes might need to open up my second kit to get the shocks out and possible build up a 3rd diff that will be quicker I suppose! J

First Team Yokomo info from the ETS race. Gotta love the slight dig at the Xray T4!
