Default Outdrive/CVD Lube

What's better: Tamiya Anti Wear Grease or VG outdrive grease?

Yes, you can't beat a bicycle self drying chain lube.

I use Paris Racing's "Ronnie" Grease. It's dark green and pretty sticky. My CVD/LCD/RCD joints last a long time between rebuilds. Just gotta clean them out and re-apply grease once in a while. Sadly, one can't find "Ronnie" grease anymore.

Tamiya's AW grease would probably prevent wear better than most but that grease is just too dang sticky. Can't help but think it would slow the car down somehow.

There's always Xenon Racing's Blue joint protect grease (if you can find it ). This is what the TRF team uses. Part number is CHE-023. It's at the bottom of the first page on the Xenon products list pdf. It cannot be found for sale via google. One guy told me he had to go through http://www.tonisport.de/ to get some...
