thicker oils will send enough power to the rear for a wheel stand, which would make it easier to drive and reduce wear on the rear diff... there are benefits to running a center diff.

I have the original truck and no thick oils will make the truck do wheelies. I had to lock the center diff and then I could pull wheelies. To reduce wear on rear diff run hard gears and shim properly. The new truck uses chain drive for the center. No room for a true center diff. Which is what everyone hated about on the original truck. All the power goes to the ground like a true truck. Ther are no benefits I have seen from a center diff. Nothing but problems. Lock it and drive hard!

There is a big difference from locked to diff fluid. Also with brushless there will be more togue and no viscosity diff fluid will lock the diff like the stock.

I can find any number of 1/8 truggies pulling wheelies with a center diff and given the usa1 is a taller/shorter truck with larger tires I have no doubt in my mind that you could engineer a center diff that would not "ruin" the truck. Given that quite a few reviewers on the truck seem to be surprised by the amount of punch and flip-ability it has stock, I would go as far to say a center diff would be a welcome add-on.

You do you though.
