I use either Losi or Kyosho. Be interesting to see what others use for preference.

I can't tell any difference between as and losi. We tried all kinds of stuff back in the early 90's but I've tried some of them more recently and all caused slippage in the current diff's.

That's because they're all made in the same place with a different label :-)

I use super lube synthetic grease, comes in a big 3oz tube, and you can use it to coat your shock shafts, gears, and ball diffs.
I feel it works better than RC ball diff grease.

Schumacher if I can find it if not I'll use Tamiya. The Schumacher is a bit thicker than tamiya so it doesn't fling off as easily thus lasting a bit longer but both I find work very well.
