Default Ballooning and diff oil

What diff oil combinations are best to keep the front tires from ballooning so much,,,,I have the kraton 6+8s,,,and also an xmaxx...actually in general with most vehicles. As I have many,,,,I seem to have front tires ballooning for the most part....thanks guys....

Diff oils will make very little difference in ballooning effect, especially if you are running on 8S!

Use this chart here to help you tune your diffs for your current track conditions:

If you are doing speed runs on the street, then you should be running belted GT8 wheels which won't balloon at all and will give you the best possible performance:
