If you use 1/8 diffs (so no e-revo style diffs) I would look for 30k rear and 50k front. That's what I run on my Savage and MERV and it's good for bashing purposes.

Finally, someone who agrees with my "heavier in the front, lighter in the rear" diff oil. :)

We old geezers been doin' dat while you were still in diapers sonny.:lol:
So I would say YOU agree with what everyone has been doing before.

Since your truck is LST based, I will suggest what I was using in my LST XXL and that's 50k in front and 10k in the rear. Nard Cox said 50k front and 30k rear which is also a great suggestion. I did try 100k front and 50k rear and the diffs were way too stiff for good handling in general. Good for crawling but that's it.

Fine. In light of our demicongruent naming scheme, I will call you Jared. Deal? :lol:

Eh.. nah. :lol:

Demicongruent? Your glasses are held together by tape aren't they...

Impakt has nahting! Ofna didn't come up in their search... I keep looking.

No one is disagreeing, some of you have racing on the brain :rules:
I wonder how often you have to climb snowbanks in a race? In Alabama? :angel:

Some LST specific info is good yes. Ray was the 100/F 50/R specifically for snow running? Or get run in snow at all?

Nevermind... I'm stupid.

Found the Ofna stuff.

Haha. Well heavier in the front than in the rear is normal for racing truggies and buggies cars. When I was researching for fluids in my Savage 30/50 was the most used set-up, same with the MERV.

My LST never ran in snow, I ran it this spring and summer. To run in very cold weather this winter, I would suggest going with lighter diff fluids, like 30k front and 10k rear.

Well...at almost 36 years of age, with my extremely bad back, and all of my small annoying problems that have now become big crippling problems, I honestly feel like a very old, worn out, 90 year old man!

But, yes...I have learned a lot of what I know from listening to and watching all of the older, seasoned veterans, whom I truly respect and always will!

What can I say, I guess it's the racer in me, I love the handling this setup gives...and even though I no longer race, heavier diff oil in the front & lighter diff oil in the rear is still my preferred setup, even in a truck that only sees bashing & jumping!

Yea, like I said above, my preferred setup comes from my racing days, but it works the best for me and for what I do with my vehicles (bash & jump)!

Haha...believe it or not, we actually do get a tiny bit of snow every now and then, just not on a regular basis. But, when we do get real snow, we get real snow...blizzard type stuff, like the blizzard back in 1993 (three feet plus, average)!

Cool...like it is said, "to each their own", and, "whatever works best for you"...not everyone has the exact same vehicle, setup, upgrades, terrain, etc., so we can't expect to all run the exact same diff oil weights!

A little post-season bash at the park...

:surprised: That poor camera!

Film it like it ain't yours..

That's the trusty crusty Creative Vado taking it like a soldier as always :lol:

Wowie!
That's simply a work of art...

But in the past you said some bolts started rusting..
No clear coat..or anything?

I assume pure steel is definitely going to rust..
I know you used SS in some parts, but not sure if you used them all around or just small places..
