I use the Team Losi "Great Grease'. I'm sure its some kind of regular chassis grease or something, just in a smaller tube and overpriced. Plan on using the Mobil 1 when I run out.

Ahh ok, that explains it. I didn't see that and was thinking you folks were filling your diffs with this grease, haha. Yeah i use some black lithium grease i had laying around for my grease gun. Works as well as the stuff losi charges an arm and a leg for

I like the mobile 1 red stuff too. I have used the hudy graphite stuff and it's good but it sure goes quickly.

Has anyone tried or heard about this new rb copper stuff?

Am I the only that uses the little tube of white lithium grease from advanced auto parts? Been using it on ring and pinion gears forever, never had any issues

this grease has been used on Jack Hammers for a long time, it's the best lube in metal on metal app's, great stuff for outdrives and cv's

For the pinion and diff ring, I use this stuff

http://www.modelixracing.com/ultimat...ng&n=1&pagina=

Sticks like S**t to a wool blanket.

It takes a little bit of running in and the car isn't free running when first applied, but man it's good stuff and doesn't come off.

I have tryed heaps of different brands
The eureka grease is pretty good
The best by far has been the kyosho hg grease. I use it on all the cv's ring and pinions and outdrives. I haven't had to replace a part since switching to it. Imbought a tub 2 years ago and it's still going.

I've been coating metal to metal gears in my Mugens since the 6 came out.
This newest Ceramic coating I am using is designed for lubricity & wear, it's used in the firearm industry.
For me the biggest advantage is its "dry" application.
If you end up getting dust/dirt in the diff. housing, it doesn't stick to a "wet" lube on the gears.

RPM How long is the coating lasting on the mesh of the gears before it wears off? By your post i'm asuming you use no form of wet lubrataion on your gears at all?

Correct, no grease on the ring & pinion.
Inside the diffs., I've had it on 2 years, no wear.
Outside (ring & pinion, spur & clutch bell), gallons, no wear.

It is a Cerakote product.
I have been using that brand for a while.
They seem to have the most diverse product range to encompass our needs.
Heat Insulation, Heat Dispersion and Lubricty.
