    If nothing else while you're on the Traxxas site, watch off to the right side for when they're on line for support and ask them the same question. They're pretty good on answering right away and you can get their recommendation direct.

    You may get more help in the Slash 4x4 forum.....


    30k front, 5k rear?


    From my Revo manual:
    Use higher viscosity (thicker) oil for:
    • More power to the wheels with the most traction.
    • Racing on low-traction smooth surfaces.
    • Better performance for climbing on uneven terrain.

    Using lower viscosity (thinner) oil for:
    • More power to the wheels with least traction.
    • Racing on low-traction rough surfaces
    For example: the race-ready Revo Platinum Edition came with 50k front and 10k rear.

    If you are talking about the fluid inside the differential cup, in the front I will either use the stock 30,000 or 100,000. In the rear I'll either use 100,000 or 500,000. Thicker fluid helps keep both rear tires put power to the ground

    ^what he said, 100k front and 500k rear turns the slash into a drift-on-demand machine.
