Default Diff Oil Turned My Losi 8 Buggy Into a Tyco Fastraxx

Well I went with 5-7-5 and was warned that this would be an agressive option. You guys were not kidding. If you have been around for a while you may rememeber the Tyco Fastraxx. I had the neon green one when I was kid. If you remeber it was set up with tank belts and you could spin it around really fast on a dime and it looked like a top spinning on the ground.

Being new at this stuff I had no idea that some oil could make all the diffrence in the world. I was on test run to make sure everything was good and noticed that now I could do doughnuts really fast without the car advancing. It lasted until my buggy spun out so bad that it landed upsided down and then it was spinning on the motor in the middle of the street with all four wheels screaming still by the tme I got to it, LOL.

Its like I have a completely diffrent buggy. Next diff service I am going with 2or 3 in the back. I can see how your diff oil could make you or break you on the track.
