Zubak speed lube is by far the best bearing lube I have ever used, also Trinity maks some half decent stuff, but I'm not sure what its called though.

I beleive it's Royal Bearing Lube. Yup, it's not too bad and it's a nice light oil.

In twenty years I've had nothing protect and free up my bearings better than ($4 per quart) synthetic mobil one 5w-30 weight oil.........IMO this is just one more area that the professional re-packagers of the R/C industry try to make a 1000% profit on inferior film strength lubricants that they don't even make

I like the Trinity royal oil as well, nice and light. Good on stock motor bushings as well as normal bearings

I prefer ACER racings Sin Oil.....Extra thin for ultra free but yet thick enough to last along time....I only reoil mine cause I want to. Have never had to. Besides I would want to use what the manufacturer of Ceramic bearings suggest specificly for there products, even though I am using BOCA bearings the Sin Oil is fantasic...A bit thinner than Royal oil but like I said it lasts...
Also for bushings
A thicker oil would be better....sticks around for the long haul.
I found the sin oil is not real good for bushings...I use BIG Jim Bushing oil for those...I also use it on the v guilds on my lathe...lasts ten comms before reapllying is needed...
I belive Team Paradigm sells it but they are back ordered till sometime in the next millinium.
Hope this helps anyone

For the last year I have been using a valve and slide oil made for musical instruments. It is very thin and a 2oz bottle is only $5-6. Works just as good - if not better than anything you can get from your hobby shop.

SOAK YOUR BEARINGS IN MICROLON THEN USE MOBIL 1. you can't go wrong with this. the microlon bonds the metal at a molecular level protecting it if they run dry and the mobil 1 leaves a lasting coat of oil.

PERFECT!

Putting my hat in for Zubaks Speed Lube too... best stuff I've used, ever.

Makes bearings very very free, especially when compared to what I used to use (3in1 silicone oil).

regards
Ed

Marvels Air Tool Oil, great high speed bearing oil with very good anti-scuffing properties. I bought a quart in '94 and it isnt even half gone yet.
