Exclamation speed tips,and ect...

diff and bearing speed tip and still stay lubed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
guys i have been tring this out for a year and wanted to make sure it was successful before i mentioned it. well when i put my tc3 together last year.i lubed the gears in the gear box and all the bearings with this stuff that is far better than grease or any silicone grease. this lube has ran and ran hard for a year now. i just took out my bearings and the gear box apart.and wow!!!!!! no scaring or sign of wearing at all,this is awesome, i spun the bearings and took the sleve out to see them and still like brand new...so never the less if you don't have this stuff go get some....now. what is it u ask? well, i tell you.... it is liquid teflon.the same stuff you put on your mtn bike , race bike,ect. go to you nearest bike shop.and ask for liquid teflon ,it comes in a black plastic bottle and its called TRI FLOW.and this will last for a long time...so put it on your stock motors bushings, mod motors bearings, in ball cups, ball ends.any where there is friction.DO IT...................and remember who told ya.this tip....your friend and fellow racer. carpet_killa.

Default and to add

some have asked about paragons stuff, but i am not sure about paragons stuff. but the TRI FLOW teflon lube i am talking about does not slow nothing. squirt some on your fingers and rub them together.then wipe them off on your old shirt, and rub your fingers again. still slippery!!! this comes in two sizes 1 thats about 4oz bottle and another thats about 12oz. i bought the small one and i still have about half left after a year of using it on every thing.

I have been using the stuff for a long time now I don't like it for off-road, it goes away too quick. Even in TC bearings, I find you have to re-lube them often, becasue it does fade away. I use some stuff called molybdinum (sp). It is a grease that has super low friction, and i find it works very well in certain places. I have two kinds, a black kind and some white stuff which is 50 bucks for a container the size of a peanut butter jar. The white stuff works excellantly in the outdrive bearing on my XXX.

i open up my bearings and wiped out all the manufacturers grease then i soak it in 5w fully sintetic engine oil and then replace the seal with the oil still in it .... i have been using it for almost 2 years and theres no signs that any bearing is a gonner...
hehe
