Default yeah I know

as I said...right driver right set-up, but the principle still applies that you can get that set-up to rotate amazingly well and besides that video blows me away every time I watch it!

The stock diffs dont have any oils, just grease. What weight should I use in front and rear?

Strange question. Of course I do

It's just three weeks old, first car, my first assembly. I want to upgrade, but at the moment I want to focus on handling. Any suggestions?

twitchy handling or smooth handling so that it slightly understeers?

Sorry i didn't make this clear, but a one way enhances the grip at the front of the car. However, if the rear of the car does not have enough grip to suit your driving, you will spin out and complain until you take out the one-way and put a regular diff in front. Also, a one-way only allows for the rear wheels to brake.

I don't have a kyosho, but I know many that do, but the problem is some people like different handling traits in their car. If you want your car to have a little understeer ( making it easier to drive the same every lap) then put 5000 wt diff oil in the rear and maybe 25000 in front. However, many people like a looser setup that creates faster lap times, at the cost of consistency for a less experienced driver. Then you might use 10,000 in the front diff and 25000 in the rear diff.

These are more generalized settings for a foam tire setup, but they are easily adjusted to your liking. Some people like their diffs with the 25000 up front and 5000 in the rear, but that is more of a rubber tire setup, traditionally.

If you want more rear grip, use lighter diff oil in the rear differential. If you want more grip for the front tires, it is best to use lighter oil in the front differential. If one end has too much grip, do the opposite.

Handling is really in the setup

If you want twitchy have less caster, less rear-toe in, for less twitchy run more rear toe in more caster,

And then experiment with diff oils,
For less twitchy make the rear lighter oil then the front starting at 1 step difference.
then moving further apart

or go the opposite way for a twitchier ride

Tires and differential setup have the most effect on the handling of a car, so those should be the first things that you figure out when setting up your car. The other suspension tweaks are generally those essential last moves that make your car 'dialed'
