I already have an HPI 50000 on my center diff (on road converted hyper 7) for rally game.
I went and bought a medial pro 100000cps silicone oil but now i'm confused whether i made the right choice.
The one i currently have in (hpi) doesn't really locks the diff.
And i don't want it full lock i just want it a bit thicker.
The thicker oil i could find here it's the medial pro 100000.
What i don't understand it's the "cps" and "wgt".
Hpi doesn't say anything on what it is.
AND i can't tell by just flipping the bottles since they don't have the same volume and the bottles are different.

Go to the GE silicone website,they have a mixing chart.you type in what you have to work with & what your target is.it spits out how much of what to mix.I would use all the same brand fluid cuz like you said you dont know how your ratings relate.I always used OFNA but now their bottles are getting too big for easy storage so I'm starting to try Mugen.Somewhere on this board is a link,try gesilacones.com I'm pretty sure thats it.

That page doesn't help at all.
It's used only when you already know the viscossities.
And it's just simple math...!

What i want to know is the difference between wgt and cps!!
And also what system Hpi uses compared to others and especially medialpro.

There is a word doc about half way down that has some more info. Still nothing "official", just various individual views and thoughts.
