Default Comm Drop question

Race Prep Comm Drops:

Does anybody else have this product anymore (new company etc)? If not, does anybody know what the drops were made of?

I still have a 6 yr old bottle...

I never liked using these drops as you should really rinse the motor after each run - they attract a lot of dirt. The only time I used them is if I didn't have time to rebuild a motor on race day and I needed one last run out of it - they're good for reducing arcing on badly maintained motors. I've never seen the magic 'extra' rpms they claim to produce.

I see from another forum that someone is recommending them as a speed secret for titan 550 motors so there will probably be a renewed interest. I can see where they'd help get a couple more runs out of a half-dead non-rebuildable.

Google turned up this link where they're still available:

I still have a bunch of bottles that i used when i was racing my slash. I switched to brushless now with makes the drops a moot point. but it helped the titan get along a little. at least for the begiing few seconds of the race.

I think trinity still makes thier "black death" comm drops

I stil lhave some "zubaks speed juice comm drops" as well as another one.

We have been using them on slash 12t motors. The more you use it, the better they run. Other com drops I have tryed (zubak, trinity etc), have really chewed up the brushes making them last no more than a couple runs.

If axiom is still selling this, Ill look into it. I really would like to know what it is made of, so I might be able to reproduce it. Im even thinking of going old school and adding antifreeze to these motors to see what happens.

Thanks for the help.
