I would kinda like to know also. I've been using Trinity's Royal oil on all my bearings since I was a sperm! Although, i'm not sure if thats considered old school by todays standards? If anybody knows of some new magical super lube then let me know.

Furthermore, is there a oil that works better on ceramic bearings than steel and the other way around?

Thumbs up

The best lube around is the niftech stuff...
http://www.niftech.com/
search for Super Synthetic Oil (they make one kind for bushings and one for bearings). The oil has teflon in it and is super smooth.

They also have Micro Bearing Oil which is awesome for the bearings in the car, also the Rocket Ring diff lube rocks!!!!

Thier customer service is top notch too

Hey Rigg,
have you ever tried out the Super synthetic oil on the rest of the bearings on the car besides the motor? I really like the idea of having teflon in the bearings but was wondering if it would be advantageous to use it on the rest of the bearings instead of the Micro bearing oil?
