Default Differential Oil's

dose it matter what kind you run or are they all about the same? i was thinking about getting Mugen, Losi or Associated diff oils, any tips on which company brands make good diff oils?

In my experience they are not the same. Pick a good one and stay with it. I had a good set up in my HB 1/8th using and changed brands cause I couldn't get brand I'd been using - had to re-tune diffs due to the change. One company's 1oK is not the same as anothers.

Default Mugen Good Stuff

Yes the aboved post is on the money. Each company's fluids are a tad different even though they say they are the same weight. I have used only Mugen diff oil for the last year and have been very happy with it.

Shock oil is different as well. For example Losi shock oils are thinner in viscocity then does Associated. I like running Losi oils cause they are 2.5 changes in weight rather then 5 from AE.
