Mobil 1 no doubt! Don't buy it from amain though. Grab a tub of mobil 1 red grease from an auto parts store. It'll last forever.

+1 on Mobil 1 synthetic grease since I have been using it I have had less r/p issues. I use to use the Hudy graphite stuff. Its expensive as hell and the Mobil 1 works better.

When i first got my mbx6 i ran almost 8 gallons before i even knew that you were supposed to do that (didn't say in the manual). they ran fine with almost no wear. started doing it on a new drive chain on my buggy because people say that it's an unwritten rule and you have to. No difference what so ever. matter of fact, when i went to build my backup buggy my original gears were in fact better shape the ones i replaced them with and had the same amount of time on it.

i still however grease them anyway. All my clutchbell's and spurs are also in great shape. I have a racers edge coated/vented bell that has upteen gallons on it and still has many more. Might actually wear a hole in it before it goes. And we know you don't grease the spur/bell.


oh and mobil 1 ftw!

+1 Lucas grease from the autoparts store. $5 from the autoparts store for 14.5oz. Will probably never have to buy any again.
