  • Quote: Not if you use Durango's Green Gear Grease Part # TDR390017

    This stuff is amazing and it sticks to the gears like white on rice.

    good to know....although i hate how regular greases etc gets poured into a smaller container and marked up 1000% like AE green slime (3-4$ for a little tube) which is just noleen sf-3 grease, good stuff yes, but you can buy a tub from noleen and have a life time supply for 8-10 bucks shipped !

    white grease in RC is usually just lithium grease, found at local hardware stores for 5-10 bucks for a 300 gram tube.

    you have to be a chemist to do different viscosity of silicone oil, so rc portions are probably the best way to go

    servo i wish i gone with an xpert servo like alderboy's....i went with a 166oz/in savox...also .08 sec...i got a few savox and so far not had any trouble with them, even in my AE cars with no servo saver ... now if only the ESC industry would go 7.4v on thier BEC, even in 1/10 now that would be awesome.....not so much for increased tq, but speed

    for those of you who dont like to grease the outdrive shafts, theres dry teflon, or dry molybdenum ...it goes on wet, but when evaporated leaves a thin film that dirt does not stick to like it will on grease when it seeps out, but still result in less friction which equals longer run times, less heat etc etc...

    anyone know what ae and losi use as their "black" grease...what is it, who makes it, where can i buy a tub of it ?
  • Quote: 250.......geez bro. You're halfway to crawler. Thanks for the info today!!
    You know me, I will take any TQ I can get. :-)

    Glad to help, hope to see you in a D413 soon.
  • Cygnus X, always looking for the next tub of lube ehh.
  • Has anyone tried a longer rear camber link on the hub?
  • i knew about the nolen sf3 its great stuff
  • theres also a new grease called CRAP leadfingerrc hadnt tried it yet to see what it is
    black grease is still a mystery, I use Lucas synthetic red comes in a tube cheap!
    black grease could be valvoline wheel grease? I remember as a kid my did all the mechanics on our karts, and motocross bikes, i remember these round tubs of greases he had 2 of them
    1 was thick, 1 was very thin like the AE black grease
  • probably been discussed and this is the wrong place to ask but... Does anyone know if HB is working on a 2wd buggy? I know Ty runs a Centro with an RB6 front end on it but just wondering if HB was going to make their own...
  • Think a lot of the noise is just from the spur gear.

    Suggesting to my team mate try boiling his in hot water ...

    My source says definitely.
  • Black grease is Moly grease, can get at any auto parts store. Green grease is Moly also, the difference being that the black is made from powdered moly and green is made from liquid moly. This info came from Ron Paris at a clinic he gave in San Diego when our race day was rained out many years ago.

    Just to confirm, this is what you/others you know are using and works the same ?
    I have been asking this question for along time and i'm almost out ?

    Little tubes are a rip-off

    This is information that Ronnie gave to our club that day 10yr ago or so. When the only green grease was "Ronnie Grease". Ronnie got it from a rep that wanted to make a sale to Budwieser for truck service when he was the LA service manager.
  • i use honda moly 60 grease, and have been for years, however losi and AE grease is stickier than honda's

    the black grease is just a high pressure moly bearing grease, LOTS of variants out there, take your pick

    the clear silicone diff grease is just that, a clear silicone grease, again, plenty of choices. cant use moly there cause u cant have the balls slipping on the face of the rings
  • A very good alternative to noleen sf-3 is a bicycle product called Arlo's Slick Honey. It's a light grease for suspension so great in multi-material applications with plastics, metals and any kind of seals.
