What diff oil to use in RC car?

What diff oil to use in RC car?

Core RC Silicone Diff Oil – 5000 cSt – 60ml.

How do you mix RC diff oil?


  1. Start by placing the gear at the bottom of the differential. Next, add oil so that the edges of gear are covered (not all the way up!).
  2. Next, place the small gears on top of the gear.
  3. Finally, add some more oil until the cross pins are covered.

What is cSt oil viscosity?

The viscosity is typically reported in centistokes (cSt), equivalent to mm2/s in SI units, and is calculated from the time it takes oil to flow from the starting point to the stopping point using a calibration constant supplied for each tube.

Is 10W 40 too thick?

A low viscosity oil will move quicker through the engine to keep it lubricated and cool. Additionally, if your engine has a lower running temperature, 10W-40 motor oil might be too thick. Its higher viscosity at running temperature can reduce engine effectiveness as it’ll need more energy to keep the engine operating.

Is transmission oil and diff oil the same?

The most obvious answer to this question is that gear oil is generally intended for use in manual gear boxes and transmission fluid is for automatic transmissions.

What is the difference between the 2028 and 5b flux?

With extra-thick wires, gold-plated connectors and cooling fins, the 2028 is the perfect match for the Baja 5B Flux. The 5B FLUX features a tool less easy entry large sized battery box capable of holding two hard case 4s LiPo packs or one 8s LiPo pack with an easy to reach opening for connecting the battery (s) and ESC together.

What type of oil should I use in my shocks and differentials?

There seems to be a lot of debate about what brand of oil to use in shocks and differentials. While silicone oil is recognized as the best for RC due to its ability to resist changes in viscosity due to temperature fluctuations, the labeling can be misleading.

What kind of radio does the HPI kit have?

All of the latest HPI kits are now fitted with reliable and feature-packed 2.4GHz radio systems for supreme control and confidence! The latest digital 2.4GHz radio technology allows you to confidently drive your HPI kit with other drivers without worrying about things like frequencies or radio conflicts.
