Total Props: 0 (USA) has stuff about racing in their "FAQ" section, but you really have to filter through the crap to find the useful, more complicated stuff. what i liked was in FAQ/Tuning Guide/ Level 1, 2, 3 Adjustments.
...if that helps

Front Thinner · increases steering into corners (off-power)
· if oil is too thin the steering may become inconsistent,
especially it can lose forward traction
(and steering) during acceleration out of corners

Front Thicker · increases stability into corners during braking
· increases steering on-power at corner exit

Center Thinner · front wheels unload more during acceleration
· decreases on-power steering (reduces over steer)
· easier to drive on rough tracks
· if a high-power engine is used you could waste too much
power and sometime “cook” the oil in the center differential
because it “overloads”

Center Thicker · more all-wheel drive effect
· better acceleration
· increases on-power steering (reduces under steer)
· better suited on high-bite, smooth tracks
· car can be more nervous to drive especially if a high power
engine is used - you might need to be smooth on the throttle

Rear Thinner · increases cornering traction
· increases steering into corner

Rear Thicker · decreases rear traction while cornering
. reduces wheel spin
