Default LOSI CRAWLER GEAR GREASE QUESTION???

I am new to the crawling world and just got a night crawler to play around with. I see it mentioned in some of the forums that the gears need greased often and was wondering if anyone had any more info on this. How often? What for grease? How do ya do it? any pics or videos available to help would be much appreciated.....THANX!!

I comped my Losi Crawler for two seasons and used Grim Racer Boat Grease. I filled the axles once and it lasted and lasted to the next rebuild. Not bad for $3 a tub,

I included it with the LCC when I sold it.

I clean / check / and re-grease mine after every 3 or 4 comps.
I'm still running the original gears after 20 months and about 35 comps.

I use some generic wheel bearing grease that I bought at the auto parts store.

I use Lucas Marine Grease in mine. 14 oz tube at local home improvement store was 3-4 bucks and will last forever.
