Have some patience, grasshoppa!

LST or LST2, doesnt matter much... Follow this procedure and you will have some near-bulletproof diffs. I've done this myself and have had no more problems since. If you want to have less "one-wheel-wonders" then you want thicker oil in the diffs. 40,000-50,000wt for example. This will hurt your steering ability though. Thinner oils like 10,000-30,000wt are better 'all-around' oil weights for a monster truck. You can go down to 5,000-10,000wt also, but you will likely not get power to all 4 tires in high-traction situations.

I think I used 20,000wt in the front and 30,000wt in the rear, with some silicone brake grease for fullsize automobile brake systems on the ring and pinion gears. I run mostly off-road with a few wheelie runs on pavement. If you don't have bearings yet, Check out AvidRC.com. Most of the bearings they sell are $1 each, and you have your choice of color of the rubber seals.
