Default Good DRY Lube for plastic gears

I was using white lightning but It seems to soften plastic compared to those lubed with Tamiya clear grease.

I prefer dry teflon over graphite. i use this:

I also hear that some folks like Remington DriLube:

Really, any type of dry PTFE (teflon) spray should do quite well.
