Default Upon recent discovery.........

I was wondering what wt oil to use in my diffs when the time comes to rebuild them in my 8ight-t. I went to the set up post and did some research. What I found was suprising.

Front: 25 people used 7k, 5 people used 10k, 4 used 5k
Center: 18 people used 10k, 6 people used 7k, 5 used 15k
Rear: 11 people used 3k, 8 people used 5k, 7 people used 7k, 6 people used 2k

Overall: 7/10/3 looks like the most popular combo

This was kinda interesting. It was fun to see what people were using. There were a few anomolies as one guy was using 120k in the center along with the lone 10k rear diff user. I then looked at set up sheets for both Adam Drake and Ryan Mayfield. Drake used 7/10/2 and Mayfield used 7/7/7. On this note I think I will pick up a bottle of 7k fluid.

Let me know what you think.

7/10/3 sounds the best, its a good baseline/starting point for truggys.... you cant look at mayfeilds setup since he run AE and he runs the weirdest setups and AE is so different than other truggies.
