I was just wondering what would be a good lube for the bevel gears on the pro 4? I have been using the lube that comes with the kit, but it is almost gone.

White Lightning. You can find it in bike shops. Used it on my old TC3 and Pro4.

I wouldent bother if I was you.
I dont bother an I havent broke any bevel gears yet (touch wood!) I dident bother with my TC3 either.
As soon as you've done a few laps the grease just flys off and sticks to the inside of the diffcases.
However, I would break in gears using grease tho...

sorry but what does HTH mean?

i agree, there is no point in using grease.

i did mine with the kit diff lube and when i bust a bevel gear my diff case was covered in teh stuff but the gears were just a tad bit 'wet' if u want to say from the grease.

Default Grease on gears

Guys, you should put a little grease on the gears whether it be breaking them in, or racing it on the track. You don't need a lot, just enough to lightly coat the gears. White Lightning works pretty well, and many use it with good success.

@the person who emailed me:

i never caught your name, but i put the link back to some of the building tips that i posted earlier in the thread. just see my sig....

They make several different ones.

Our setup sheet is on the way. It will calculate Anti-Dive/ Kickup Angles for the front and the Anti-Squat and Pro-Squat for the rear after you enter all the values...

We should have the .pdf up on our site soon. Until then, here is Andy Kraemer's setup from the LRP Masters. This is a good starting setup for rubber tires on carpet. It is a .jpg for now as the .pdf is too big to upload here. Sorry for the lower quality.

-E
I am making an interactive Flash setup sheet as well.. I hate PDF's.. lol..

I ended up using a light coat of Mugen's super joint grease for a while, but this last gear set I've been running dry - no boiling, no lube.
