30K weight is another commonly used differential oil; however, 50K weight differential oil doesn't wear off as quickly, and has a higher viscosity so it doesn't let the cube spin out of control as easily either. Hence, most speed cubers use 50K oil.
This oil comes with a little screw-on applicator (see product image). You'll need to cut off the tip with a pair of scissors. Also, when detaching the little cap from the applicator, be very careful not to pull too hard - the plastic breaks easily. My cap detached completely from the applicator because I pulled too hard.
Oddly enough, the instructions on the bottle say to "Remove diff housing cover & pull out diff case & ring gear." I was unable to locate the diff housing cover on my cube, so I just pulled a corner piece out and applied a couple drops of oil there (not too much). I put the piece back in and scrambled thoroughly. This approach worked very nicely.
I removed the differential on my 2wd Grave Digger to shim it and replace the chewed up pinion gear, and decided to have a look inside the diff. Seeing that it was dry, I put this oil in, and now the diff acts like a limited slip differential. So my Grave Digger is a bit more prone to traction rollover, but it accelerates quite nicely now.
My 4wd Terremoto utilizes a center differential in the tranny, and it was sending a lot more of the motor's power to the front wheels. I have seen videos of people shredding their front tires, so I decided to put this oil in the center diff to prevent that happening to my Terremoto. The oil helped, it isn't so thick that it will lock the diff, but it balanced the power output between the front and rear wheels. Heck, my Terremoto even pops a wheelie on occasion now!
In short, this is a good product and worth considering if you want your differential(s) to be a bit tighter.
