You are seriously joking, right?

Get some Mobil 1 and be happy it will last you the rest of your RC career!

WD-40 works fairly good at removing sticker scum. Not sure about anything else.

I believe Mobil 1 is what comes in the engines of Corvettes and various other high end cars striaight from the factory. If it's good enough for the engine of a $60,000+ car, it's more than good enough for a $40 rc car motor that's going to be thrown in the trash after one season.

I have a bottle of the MuchMore bearing lube. It's super thin and works great on lubing bearings in motors and the chassis. I also have a bottle of Trinity cheap oil (like $4) that is a little thicker. This is good for bushings and other misc things like lube on my comm lathe. Last I have a bottle of Tribo comm drops. This stuff is supposed to be the best on stock motor bushings and also in break-in.

There, you have brands names.

I've used it for a tire additive, it makes them pretty sticky if you let it set for awhile.

Have also used Lucas oil additive for rebuilding diffs, very smooth.

Does Motor oil work on both foam and rubber and do you use the oil additive like silicone diff oil?
