Lighter diffs a bit smoother. But need to use heavier oil

The highest traction I've ever run on was at Chaplin. I ran 2 and 4 gears. This was with the 733

Basically a lighter diff less rotational mass and a smoother feel.

It is personal preference at the moment i am running the following with good success

Front
200,000 cst Xceed oil - 4 gears
Rear
80,000 cst Xceed oil - 2 gears

i would run 2 gears in the front but i can not find oil with a CST rating of 400,000 or 500,000!!!
If anyone has any recommendations for the heavier oil please let us know.

Your right, I got Xray and Xceed oils, Xray does feel lighter. The Hudy Oil is super thick, I had to scoop it out with a teaspoon Havent compared the lighter Hudy oils against Xceed.

Kyosho 500k is much heavier than xceed 200k.
But i think you need 1.5 million weight if you want to get 2gears to feel like your diff did yesterday lol

I run 200K(xceed) front (4 gears) and 50k(mugen) rear (4 gears). When you go to 2 gears your diff fluid options become slim. Not to many choices above 200K.

Pass you soon...
