    Question HELP !!!! diff fluid questions

    if i were to put 100k diff fluid in front and rear diffs would it help the summit 1/16 to be a better crawler?
    what is the stock diff fluid? or greese?
    brushed or brushless for better climbing?
    HELP!!!!!

    likley, yes but too heavy in front (esp) may hamper steering
    maybe 80/100 ? Try it and see (or traxxas has a locker diff insert thats cheap for spool action in rear)

    are you climbing WFO ? go brushless
    or, low speed crawling with minimal wheel slip? go brushed
    There are lots of ways to do that. Most are wrong.

    IF you go brushless, make it sensored.
    Sensored brushless can go slow without cogging... sensorless cannot.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Yes you can... they will increase turning radius by a lot... just so you know.

    sounds like im in a similiar boat as traxxasdeathwish. i have the stock brushless motor and understand that brushed is the best for low speed crawling but if i want to keep my stock brushless motor, what else should i change? i did the tranny flip and locked the rear diff with blue tac (but it doesn't appear to have helped much).
