I use a light coat of mobil 1 synthetic grease it's a strange red color, on the r/p and the gears do not show any wear after several gallons. I use to use the hudy graphite grease but the mobile 1 seems to work better and it's ally cheaper. Whatever grease you use do not over grease the gears it will add drag and make your engine work harder, not perform better.

I've used Eurika for the last couple of years with good success, AE black grease is also pretty good.

Same for me, hudy graphite grease is so expense. I've used a little to much mobil 1 red stuff and the extra just ends up on the diff case when I pull it apart for a rebuild.

Any wheel bearing grease will work fine.

I also use some synthetic wheelbearing grease. Got a big tub which should last me about a gazillion years.
Another option I also like is the traxxas lithium grease. Sticks to gears nicely and works great.
