Default Grease Spray Lithium Base

I got a can of Grease Spray Lithium Base lying around, my question is

1.Can i use it for my bearings instead of paste type grease?
2.Can i use it as an after run oil replacement for my nitro engine since its a lubricant?

Default White Lithum Grease Spray

If you talking about "white'' lithium grease spray(got my can from home depot)then yes, they are good for bearings, ring/pinion, etc. As ND said, I wouldnt use it on an engine or carb. I pop all the seals off the bearings and dump them in a jar of NAPTHA and let them soak for about 20min(occasionally swooshing around jar), next I dump them out and let them dry for 10min(NAPTHA air drys super fast), then spray a paper cup half full of white lithium spray, put all the bearings in the cup to soak for about 10min, dump em out, put the seals back on, and there just as good as new. If bearing is still gritty after this, means its bad and just throw it out. Never had any bearing failures since doing it this way, hope this helps man.
