Default Help with center diff fluid for hyper 7

I know what the recommended fluid is, but I usually like a little heavier in the center. Is 15k too thick for the center diff? It is a hyper 7 rtr black, thanks.

Mostly just park, grass and brush running, occasional racing.

7k is recommended by most, and as I said, I have always used thicker fluid, just seems to suit me better, was just wondering if 15k is too thick and if maybe 7k would be better?

15 is to thick for racing but it will be ok at the park. Try 10,000 and tweak from there

So would I be correct in figuring 15k is twice the viscosity of 7k? What fluid would be the equivalent of a locked diff?

I guess pretty much wondering what diff fluid would give me to where the buggy starts to wheelie lol. Not like a revo lol, but where the front wheels start to come up just a little.
