Default Has anyone tried drylube for the diff?

Will dry-lube perform better on the diff and gears than silicone grease?

Yah because it doesn't attract dust/dirt. Try Paragon lube, you can get it at towerhobbies.com

I use dry graphite lube, you can get it in any hardware store. Sticks to the plastic and is very slippery...

It sounds like you are wanting to use it on the diff balls too. That would not be a good idea. You need to use a silicone based lube for the balls, otherwise the diff will constantly slip.

Default dry lube

Thanks for the info guys, MO, the dry-lube I found is silicone based. Is this OK for the diff balls too?
