I do. But If I had a dry teflon lube-I Would use it. I cannot say I have had any noiceable wear in my TC3 trannies running them dry and have even hard from guys that they saw a lot of wear when running a lube!! Doesnt make sense.

Default Diff gears

I run mine dry, but usually I over grease my diff and it slings out onto the gears. And my car spins super free.

I'm thinking using one of these. What do you guys think? Which one would be better.

The first one is the same is Bike Lube w/teflon...very messy....

get dry lube it sticks to the plastic better... a great alternative is Ultralon...but is discontinued at Tower... next best thing is
White Lightning bike lube...

I have Ultralon and I don't like it. Once I put on, I have to keep spinning till it dry or the gears will seize up. And it is hard to remove. That's why I want to try somethingelse.

Paragon makes liquid graphite or at least they use to. I used that on my Pro4 gears. Dries in like a minute or two and stays on a long time. My local shop was getting it for me all last year.

For best results...It's usually applied before the car is assembled.
the standard grease that came with the car will work fine....
or soak your gears in WD-40

I might try soak in Mobile 1 fully synthetic transmission fluid. But it stinks.

Guys The only thing to use on diffs is Graphite Powder.The brand I use is made here in Australia.Being a dry powder you just puff it on and Hey Presto no worries!!!!!!

I had a major problem last race night......For the first lap I had MAJOR interferance,thenfor the rest of the race full control again.This happened 4 times...practise was fine...I tried putting the reciever (KO kr297fz)on the servo,I also changed crystals....Still the same problem.

Any ideas??????

you should be able to get them at hardware store.
Mine says it's great for all "locks"

Anyways, Ultralon is good stuff too!
