Tranny gears? Will standard lithium grease hold up to racing?
Diff? I have diff grease, do I just lube the balls?
Sipper? No lube here correct?
Depends on the car for the lube on the gears themselves. If it has metal gears, they need lube. Most manufacturers don't recommend lubing plastic gears. Each company is a little bit different. If you do use lube on plastic gears you have to be careful that the lube doesn't degrade the plastic.
No lube on the slipper pads.
Diff lube on just the diff balls is usually a good place to start. Extra lube just attracts dirt.
