I have a bottle, have had it for a long time now.

Can't say it does much noticeable difference, honestly.
Repeated usage will just leave a big sticky mess in the motor.

Believe I get better results by just remembering to oil the motor bearings...

tried that before, dint notice any difference in performance. Tribo Power Matrix Comm Lube is the way to go if you want real performance enhancement. visit http://www.team-paradigm.com

Default Tribo Drops

Guys;

In experiments with my Robitronic Dyno and on Track. I've found that the drops produce a Power LOSS on the Dyno.

On track there SEEMS to be a slight Power gain the first run, but the Brushes always end up being severly pitted afterwards. Without the Tribo, the Brushes always look fine.

I now just use the Tribo for Bushing oil and it seems to work great in that application.

yeah pops,

i get the same effect from using rem oil from remington the gun manufacturer. it's an ultra thin lube with teflon that does seem to increase performance for some of the run, but my brushes pit like crazy as a result. i've been waiting until the third and last run on a set before i use it.

interesting find.

On close inspection, the Trinity Black stuff appears to be a
suspension of black bits in a clear liquid.

Hmm... what if one mixed powdered graphite in with a light oil?

Definitely one for the test list for a rainy day.
