Default they're ok but.....

Those are OK but I use castrol sewing machine oil for all my bearings. This is also called light machine oil and it is exactly the same as all the special to hobby type and cost 1/4 as much.

Hope this helps

i have noticed a lot of guys using Mobil 1 for bearing oil, get synthetic in straight 30 weight, less additives. and a quart would last an entire racing career

I have found that Niftech micro bearing oil seems to be the best. I have used it for many months. It has a soaking affect into the bearings and makes what seemed to be worn out bearings smooth again. The best part is that it only takes a few drops.

I just relubed the bearings with BarDahl Engine additive #1. In the past this was one of the best at leaving a nice lube coating on metals. Its about 10W oil. I passed on the Mobil 1 and will try this one out.

I use synthetic oil from Acer Racing. Very light weight and works wonders. A good deal for 4.99/bottle and will last you many many years! You can find it on their bearing page.
