I would use a fluid heaver than 10k in the rear for all but very low traction conditions. Balance is important for these cars. Remember if the front diff is a 4 gear one, then it will require a heaver fluid to attain the same characterstics as a 6 gear diff. Try the 20k weight fluid and see how the car performs under power on steering, acceleration and sweepers.

Also to answer all of your question, I have been using OFNA silicone fluid (20K) and Associated silicone fluid (10k, 100K). Both are working well for all of my cars.

There is no silicone oil in the one way - they are just two bearings.

Once you have been using it awhile you need to clean and relube the bearings with a *light* oil. There is special one-way lube around. If you use oil too heavy the one-way bearings will slip.
