Default Locking the diffs for nitro car drifting

Should you lock the front and rear diffs on a nitro if you want to drift with it? Is it necassary and if so what is the best thing to use to lock the diffs? I've heard selveral things in other forums from Silly puddy to playdough, I'm wondering what you one road guys would suggest.

I think there's a drifting forum on here which guys will probably be able to help you more, however, from my understanding you lock the rear one (as you want to spin the rear out) and things like bluetac, silly puddy as you mentioned etc would all work

Realistically, anything that you stop the spindles from moving + you would be able to remove if you wanted to

Locking the front diff and leaving the rear one soft prevents oversteer. So if you want to create oversteer do the oposite. make the front one working (but still keep it stiff enough) and block the rear one.
