I'm liking those positive vibes and the motivation Walter, can I put 30wt shock oil as a temporary? Probably will buy diff oil soon lol.. 30wt is super light, but do you think it'll do the job lolDon't be scared. Get in there!
The manual has exploded views and shows you how much oil to put in. If you want to watch something first, just about any RC differential video will help, even if it's not Arrma specific... once you are inside they are similar enough.
the thing is haha, running on the stock grease, which is probably all gone by now lol... yepYou would be better off waiting until you have the proper diff oil, the existing 'oil' will do for now.

I am just unsure about the 30wt if it even does anything... would it be like "something is better than nothing"It's like swimming in a cold lake, jump in and get it over with.
There's a guy, @Steve , heard he uses shock oil in his diffs...
Don't tell the RC police...

WOAH YOU CAN TAG YOURSELF @justatree @justatree
I ordered some 100k diff oil and plan on refilling thatI'll be taking mine apart in the near future, they are usually not very difficult. Between the exploded diagram and what you see/learn taking it apart it becomes much easier to put back.
30wt oil will leak out over time, but it will provide lubrication. In the past I used to pack with grease to lock the diff up more but the grease packs and slings too much and after a few runs its not very stiff anymore.
I think it's better to use thick diff oil instead of grease, it provides more consistency. I bought 100K, 500K, and 1M cSt diff oil online (team associated) for about $9 each, to use in my Typhon. Im planning to rebuild the Fury diff and use 500K in it.
