So the thicker the rear diff oil the more forward traction but the car will slide into the corners (less sideways grip) also the car will have less turn in. Is this correct?

Yes. Is correct.

Think that a thicker oil on diff will cause too more rear tyre wear due to tyre scrubbing on the corners.

Thick shock oil for smooth tracks and thinner oil for bumpy tracks.
Thank you Keely I think I will be sticking to the stock 10,000 weight for Chris' track. What do you think?

and if you want a bit more steering put a thicker diff oil in it, depends on the track just like a lot of things do

100,000 in the fron diff? Wowzers!! When I run a diff, usually 30,000 in the front and 10,000 in the rear.

I am not sure. I have never ran on a track like this before. Any of you ever ran at the Toledo track before? What diff oil do they run there? Front one way? Front spool?

I usually run 30,000 in the rear diff but that is to keep the rear inside wheel from diffing up so much on these untreated parking lot tracks. When we ran the take off rubber tires I ran 10,000 in the rear and 30,000 in the front but that is the only time that I ever ran a front diff.

I am going to try both ways. I am starting out with 30,000 and going to try 20,000 then 10,000.

At least with this car access to the rear diff is really easy. I have removed a diff, changed the oil and gotten it reinstalled in less than 7 mins when I am under pressure.

It was more like 30-45 minutes with the -3 if you hurried.

Front uprights, wheel hexes, 2 speed shaft, diff gears, front universals, 1 way outdrives, axles, some bearings(not clutch), Front servo mounts, probably more but cant think about it right now.
