Default Grease Question

Is there a grease that will stick on moving parts (eg stick on gears) and not fly off when in motion?

Thanks
Adam

Chain lube available at bicycle or motorcycle shops is made to not sling off of rotating parts. It does tend to be sticky and would likely cause some extra drag in an r/c car I'd think...

of course ..... , I use tamiya ceramic grease for all sort of lubrications : bearing lubrication, enclosed gear box lubrication, gear diff, servo gear, thrust bearing, metal to metal, and many more.

I usually buy them in 12 packs. It's good stuffs.

You could try a dry teflon bicycle chain lube.... It's what I use on CVD's, works a treat (and no dirt pick-up).
It goes on wet, then you wipe off and it dries onto the surface. First time you use it, needs a couple of applications, but after that re-oating every once in a while is fine. As most also contain Teflon, they are pretty slippy, useful for moving parts.

Ask for Pedros at your local bicycle store. They offer different kind of lubrication products like chain lube, grease, etc. I have been using Pedros for man years. http://www.pedros.com/
