Default Plastic Safe Grease

New to the forums & new to RCs.

I recently purchased a used Tamiya TT01D, and looking into re-greasing the drivetrain parts. I searched a few other forums and found some folks having good experience with white lithium grease.

Any experiences here? Does everyone buy Tamiya AW Grease?

As far as I'm concerned, Tamiya AW grease is gods gift to the R/C lubricant world. Only problem is it is expensive and can be hard to find.

AW grease is heavy, I would't use it on the plastic gears of a TT-01. Maybe on the driveshafts.

For the gears, you can't really go wrong with a light coating of Tamiya's ceramic grease.
