I found I have a gear diff in my Kyosho. What weight oil would you recommend I use in my 2wd sct indoors?
Thanks RFR

It may be just a grease diff

What is the model number of your car Rob. Have a look at your manual or download a manual, there should be some info provided there.

a lot of times especially when I first started racing guys  were just filling the diff case with black grease.  Pretty sure Graeme is saying thats what he might have done
