For people who live in Canada. It can be very difficult finding Mobil 1 grease. I talked to a few employes at my local automotive shop and they said the places that have Mobil 1 actually ordered it directly from them. Thats why most shops might not have it. So if your one of the people that can't find Mobil 1, I am using some grease called Red Line CV-2 Synthetic. So far I am actually liking it better then Mobil 1 because it doesn't seem to break down as fast, but still offers the same protection. LOL only down side is it literally smells like crap when using it. Another person that worked at my local auto shop that is hard into RC's was also recommending Castol Synthetic if you can't find the Red Line stuff I mentioned before.

+1 this is what i use on the ring and pignon gears, tube last along time it also stays on the gears and will not make a mess inside the gearbox.
