I noticed in your signature that all the cars listed are offroad. In my experience, any performance advantage that comm drops provides isn't really noticed in an offroad vehicle. It also attracts unwanted dust to the comm & brushes which accerlates wear. A couple extra practice runs or a new set of the correct tires for your track will be a much better way of lowering your lap times. Offroad is much more about driving & consistency than extra horsepower.
With that said, if you are running an on-road vehicle on a very high bite surface (ex. 1/12th scale or touring car w/ foam tires on carpet) then I have had really good luck with the REVTECH or REVTECH 2 drops from trinity. I believe that NIFTECH also has a good comm drop formula too, from what I can remember. Also, you can find the little plastic bottle with the needle applicator at most craft stores really cheap.
The best comm drop formula I have used so far is a brushless NOVAK motor!
(J/K......Hope that helps some! Good Luck & Have Fun!!)
