Default Best bearing oil?

whats the best/lightest bearing oil? i currently have the clear niftec bearing oil, which after consulting with some of the pro's at my track said it would be perfect for bushing! lol. so i am in some need of BEARING oil, and since i am running 12th scale, i need the lightest stuff. i was told trinity royal oil was good, but does anyone know of any other brands or could help me out here, thanks!

Default ZUBAK

If you take the time to clean and dry out your bearings-the fastest lube by far is the Zubak Speed-Lube. It goes on wet and the carrier evaporates leaving a slippery dry film behind.

Trinity's 'Royal Oil' is repackaged military spec synthetic bearing lubricant for gyros (so are many others). It is sold by many manufacturers under many names around the world. The lubricant is extremely light and attracts far less dirt than petroleum. Trinity is making a killing selling it for $5/oz but it is the best stuff out there.

I use prolong as well it works great! It does get dirty quick and you will find yourself cleaning bearings more often.

Royal Purple bearing oil is the best i have ever used. A little expensive, but it works great.
