With a lower viscosity fluid, 10000 or 30000, the diff will have more action allowing the wheels to adjust to the different speeds easier. This will create more traction for that end of the car. For a low bite track, you may want to run a diff in the front with a heavier fluid or even a spool with some 7,000 ot 10,000 in the rear. When I ran it like this, I used 30,000 in the front and 10,000 in the rear. I hope this helps.

the higher the number of diff oil is usually used in higher grip conditions, lower number, thinner oils are better for low grip conditions. i use 10,000 weight oil in my diff for low grip track and it works well, you can try that and see if it works for you to, in my g4 i used 3,ooo and that was tops so it depends on your car and your driving style. hope that gives you an idea of where to start, good luck and have fun
