Associated diff oils have the CST (Mugen Weights) written on the bottle. It is pretty small towards the top of the bottle.

Regarding diff and shock fluids, you shoul use the same brand name for all the grades, it makes it alot easier to tune because you are using that brand grading, so you will notice gradual diferences when changing fluids, I learn the hard way, I use to buy whatever was cheap for the grade and lots of times a 40 from x brand felt like a 60 from y brand, Now I use only Ultimate oils and I am a lot more consistent with my chassi tuning, a properly tuned chassis will make you faster than a fast power house motor, You drive the track layout unstead of fighting with the car to go around the layout.
Make shure you use the same brand for your oils (Losi, AE, Kyosho, etc) because they all grade diferent from brand to brand.

I learned the hard way. Stay with one brand. The young man that allways marshalls for any one got hooked up with all the other brands left over. Very happy dude.
