are you referring to lubing the o rings?

if so then use a synthetic oil product that is safe for orings when reinstalling the needles and lubing the orings

if you are referring to sealing the carb and engine i would recommend the lucky 7 stuff , it is the same as the old air-seal and works as it is intended .

most of your high quality engines have no need for any sealant of any kind , just a tip

if you want to seal threads, just use teflon tape.

Most of your low-quality engines need some serious help.

I had to use Teflon tape AND a liberal application of blue LocTite to keep the needles from spinning out of adjustment from engine vibration on my CEN Racing's Matrix R2 RTR. Feels good to finally have it hold a tune.


Take it easy,
