Im not surprised every one doesnt want to give up the "trick" secret settings

but 5000 front
7000 centre
1000 rear is a good place to start

Two more things to note. Different brands of car will behave differently with the same diff setup. The above is a good start, but you might find that you need more (or less) rear and less (or more) front depending on a) the track and b) your driving style.

Real good web site for reading on diff setups:
http://rc411.com/pages/howto.php?howto=24&page=1

Also - different oil manufacturers are graded differently, Xray and Mugen oils are similar, but Associated (for example) use a slightly different rating to these. Stick to one brand (same with shock oils) and you will be right.
See ya on the track

Im assuming the oil is used to tune the gas buggy "open" diff the same way tightening or loosening the tension on an electric cars ball diff does?
