Default need everyones opinion please

Ok so I ordered a extra center diff. for my kyosho gt2 inferno ve (electric 4 those who dont know) just to have as a spare at the track and recieved it assembled but they forgot to put a screw in were you would fill the fluid but there was grease osing out. The diff seems to have a little resistance when turning by hand do to the grease inside. If that was oil it wouldn't have resistance. So I called kyosho and they said the rtr has oil and some have grease depending on the type of surface a person runs on, he also said that the more gears in a diff. you would run thicker lube such as grease or thicker oil. My qs is what do u guys run in there and does kyosho sound correct here? Thanks all

When I first got my Kyosho I disassembled my diffs to check if they had any lube in them.... much to my surprise they had very little diff oil in them. The center diff was filled with grease. So I filled my front diff with 50,000 weight diff oil and the center diff with 100,000 weight diff oil the rear diff has 5,000 weight diff oil this combination works very well for me on the low traction surfaces I run on.
