Default Lubrication

Do I need to lubricate my car? like the gear box or the fly wheel? I just got a RC car and have been running it for a few days. So far I have been using a can of compressed air to blow away any dust. Thanks for your advice.

flywheel? might want to check out the nitro forums. Electric cars only need to re-lube the bearings and universals. You can leave sealed gear boxes for a long time. Never checked the lube on my mini for 6months and still runs good.

If you're looking for some good lube, may I suggest the following:

Fister Racing Lube

Try the Fister Ball Lube. It's magical. Or at least scrumpdillyumptious.

The wording of the sentences is perfect. I couldn't finish reading them it was so funny.
