I use a mixture of BP Ener Gease with some Mobile 1 Engine oil
added to it.

Come out to be a good mix!

Don't use grease in your bearings if you race. Basically once your bearings are clean and they spin freely you can use a light oil like trinity royal oil, trinity BB oil is thicker and will make your bearings feel smoother but it will just create more drag in the drivetrain. You can use grease in your bearings but it will slow your car down quite a bit.
