Default Bushing Lube

What type of lubricant are racers using for the bushings in their stock motors?

I think TRIBO works, I use triflow. It has teflon additives.

I use Trinity Bushing buster during break in.. then clean it off and apply ProMatches all purpose lube. The ProMatch lube does not attract dirt.

Thanks for the information, I've been using the trinity bushing lube but wondered if something better has been found. I might give the tribotech a try.

A friend of mine says that Mobil Synthetic oil in 5W30 works extremely well. Anybody else use this stuff?

Thanks,

Joe

I use a 50/50 mix of Valvoline 5W-30 synthetic motor oil and Tribotch IJP.
