Normally we use 10K, 20K, 30K.

10K is the most widely use for small tight track
30K is the most widely use for open flowing track

Effects on heavier oil on rear gear diff :

• Increases on-throttle steering ( too much on throttle could cause power slide or worse , snap oversteer )
• Better acceleration if the track has good traction
• More predictable / stable car (cars with very “loose” diffs have a tendency to understeer heavily under throttle and turn-in
oversteer as soon as you lift)
• More on-throttle oversteer (snap-oversteer)
• More turn-in understeer ( at low speed corner such as tight hairpin )
• More stable under braking

50k is good for high grip tracks, it will give you more on power steering. If your car is a little loss on power try 30k, I use this when grip is down.

Here is the setup both Loran and I used for this years Texas Biggie. Our cars had good balance and excellent steering.

We have run the 2630 and the RB 2604 but for us the Skyline pipe works everywhere and with little tuning from track to track.

1.) We use the standard "LEGAL" non-turbo (part # SKL-VR12PLUS). There is no mention on the Skyline website of its EFRA status.

2.) We use this pipe with our Novarossi 353 based Murnan's and also stock Novarossi motors with good results. They work for us.
