    Hi all,
    i'm just wondering which F/C/R diff settings (meaning: oil weight) would you recommend for someone mainly interested in drifting (so rear wheels spinning).

    Stock is 10/10/10, what would you think?

    Thanks for all the help!

    Stock is 7/10/7 with not so much oil in the diff...
    Currently at 45/75/25 and it handles great. Not sure if you can turn the 4wd Kraton into mainly rwd with extreme heavy oil?

    Hi there, as far as i've understood it would need to be:

    - Light oil in rear diff (so to let wheels spin)
    - Light oil in center (so to let wheels spin)
    - Heavy oil in front

    Am i theoretically right?

    I don't think so. Light oil will spin the inner rear wheel, while you want more of a locked diff with both wheels spinning.
    Light oil in center will spin and balloon the front wheels under acceleration, heavier oil will distribute the power more equal between front and rear. Sure it will drift, but not rwd only drift.

    Heavy oil in the center diff to distribute power to front and rear equally. Heavy oil in the front to help lock it up and and transfer power to the rear. Heavy fluid in the rear but not as much as the front so it will kick the rear end out giving you the slide effect.
