Differential oils are used to alter the handling of the car, the steering, acceleration, and overall feel of the car. For a better understanding, please read Please check THEGuide HERE . For some quick advice, read below:
Most common oils used: 5000 – 10 000, basic set up 5000.
Increases off-power corner entry steering. Reduces steering and pull out of a corner.
If oil is too thin corner entry steering may be too aggressive, not enough steering out of the corner, as well as acceleration.
Smoother (less) corner entry steering. More steering and pull out of corners.
Most common oils used: 3000 – 10 000, basic setup 5000.
Front wheels unload and balloon more during acceleration, which leads to less aggressive acceleration.
Decreases on-power steering.
Easier to drive on slippery and bumpy tracks.
Increased 4WD drive effect.
Increased on-power steering.
Harder to drive on slippery and bumpy tracks.
Most common oils used: 1000-5000, basic setup 3000.
Easier to drive on power
Increased corner entry steering. Too thin oil can make the rear end loose traction suddenly, specially on corner entry.
Smoother and easier to drive entering corners, rear traction more consistent. Less corner entry steering.
Harder to drive on power, specially on slippery or bumpy tracks.
