Default Losi 8ight 2.0 Diff fluid

Hello, can anyone give me some advice on what weight diff fluid to use in my 2.0? I'm not running smart diffs just stockers. Would like a starting point for front,center and rear. Thank you for your help....Mike

Ive been running the stock 5-5-2 setup but with mugen fluids. I wouldnt mind trying 7k in the center but im worried it would make the car a little twitchy or more hard to drive. You guys think mugen 5k is the same as losi 5k?

I love the 5-5-2 setup. I have tried 7k in the center and it made the buggy harder to get in the gas and accelerate through corners w/o worrying that the rear end would step out on me. Maybe on a large sweeeping track 7k would be good, but not on the tracks I run.

Here is a silicone comparison chart someone showed me once.

I've run 7-5-3 and I really like it more than 5-5-2

seems like my car isn't so hard to drive, I recently went back to 5-5-2 to try to work on my driving without changing the car all to much

What is a good starting point for an E-converted 8T 2.0...7,5,3?
Thanks!

7, 10, 3. Trucks have so much more tire, you can run everything heavier and not have to worry about loosing traction.
