Default DM1 Spec diff and shock oil

What weight diff and shock oil does the 80% ready to run come with.I get different answers.

And what effect with it have when you go thicker or thinner oils in the front and rear diff?

This is for 1/8 scale on -road.

Thanks Pete

Pete, I am not sure about the shock oil, I changed mine out before I hit the track to 1k wt diff oil. The diff's have grease from the factory, heavy in front and light amount of grease in the rear diff.

Some racers are starting off with 50k/10k front/rear in the diffs. The exact ratio will be depend on the track's traction and your driving style. In general too heavy a fluid in front will cause understeer on power. Too heavy diff fluid in the rear will cuase oversteer while cornering on power and during off power turn-in.

Your car looked planted at LHR on Sunday, what setup are you using?

CurveTracer, I was also out there on Sunday, which car was yours? Mine was the one with the red/white proline body. I'm running the box stock setup, just tinkering with the front sway bar to take away or get more steering.

I was driving a Mercedes CLK, blue, yellow and red. My setup worked ok on the parking lot tracks with mild irregularities, but i need to develop a chassis setup for the LRH track.
