I'm using Mugen 7000 wt.

Several of the sponsors on the right will carry the diff oil.

Hostile Hobbies is a great place to order from as well:


Bunch of different options. I used the 7000 wt because that is what I had here. I'm sure someone will respond that has a better explanation!

HPI Baja Forum is also a great place to check things out on the Baja:
