    When I run the stock transmissions I go by how the truck corners.
    If you can feel excessive slippage when the weight shifts(one tire fire)its probably time for fresh grease.
    I redo mine every weekend in the stock diffs,but understand this is a bit excessive for the average rc'er.
    This is the inner diff grease I speak of,the three outer gears(diff,idler,and lay-shaft),only require a small coating to keep them running smooth.

    The inside of a stock diff is pretty easy to maintain,lithium thrust bearing grease is what traxxas recommends and gives you in the diff kit, However I often use regular auto wheel bearing grease.
    Marine grease is great if you have it,but high temp bearing grease should be just fine.
