Default Diff Oil?

Ok, I have a regular Kyosho V-One R, and I need to knwo what can I use instead of the stock rear diff oil setup. I just don;t liek the fact that you mix some of the stock 50wt shock oil and the 50000wt in a 1:1 ratio to make soem Mystery diff oil. Is there anythign that seems to be close to the the stock setup just more consistant. Like maybe 10000wt oil or something. I dunno. If you have any ideas it would be greatly apreciated. Thanks.

You can do it that way, but it is best to stick with the stuff they've got on the counter, less of a pain and more consistent.

Yeah, The manual in the Original V-One R with rubber tires wants you to mix 50K oil and the 50Wt oil in a 50:50 mix for the rear diff. I just wanna knwo what this mixture is comparable too.

I lied the way it felt by the book, but I think I'll get some oils just to have in my box. 5-10K maybe. Thanks for your help guys. I know it might have been an akward question but everyone here on this forum seems to pull through for me. Thanks again.

It's just math . .

1 part 50,000 weight
+ 1 part 50 weight
= 2 parts 50,050 weight
2
= 1 part 25,025 weight

Simple . .
