    50K, people say 100K is too light, I was going to do probably 500K in the center if I do it.

    The heavier the fluid, the less diff action... the less diff action the less relief on the parts.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    of course, if you are racing that would be great, but when climbing over things, you don't want the wheels with no traction to be getting all the power.

    Yes, it will. The effects of the LT rockers on the driveshafts its a well documented issue on both the 1/16 and full size ERBE. Its not the ONLY solution, but it is a large contributing factor. Its true with any CV style driveshaft on any vehicle, scale or full size. The more you flex the joint, the more likely it is to fail.

    All I know is I haven't changed the rockers and I"m not breaking shaft after shaft. still have 2 of the original summit shafts. Rear diffs on the other hand aren't doing quite as well.
