Default mugen mbx6t, what diff oils are you running?

looking to change my diff fluids for the first time and would love to know from others experience what weight diff fluids you guys are running? I'm not the best with fine tuning setups, i guess I've been more of the run what you brung kind of racer. needless to say as of know its stock. my local track is on the sandy side some real sharp turns and a few rhythm sections. what I'm not liking is it seems to have allot of understeer. as compared to my losi 8ight t. although the losi is a electric which I'm finding to be a totally different kind of beast. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Just a Heads up there is a Mugen mbx6t thread with all the info you'll ever need on it.

Also Visit: http://racemugen.com/

Plenty of set-ups etc etc.

Hope this helps.

aside from diff setup you need to make sure you're getting hard full lock with the truggy setting on the ground not on a car stand where wheels are at full droop, also make sure the servo saver is fairly tight.
I am running 10 10 7 in the diffs and it still can turn nice and tight.

I loved 10-20-5 but thats just me...............also depends on track surface......i ran on mostly very good clay mix tracks so traction was always on the medium to high side
