That's what he was using? I thought it was just oil.

if you put on 2 much gogo juice you will discolor the com, if you just use a drop or 2 it should work well

Dis-coloring of the comm is due to heat, not the comm drops. Are you saying that the comm drops increases heat in the motor?

You don't use comm drops on brushless motors.

The "comm" is short for commutator. That's the copper cylinder with three cuts in it that the brushes ride on in a brushed motor. Comm drops are put on the comm to get a small performance edge for a few laps. Brushless motors don't have comms or brushes so they don't use comm drops.

Yup! just read up about the difference. Thanks! So using the bearing ones can be used for the bearings all round?
