Default Grease, which is which ??

Hi,

There are many grease out there for our RC cars, and I'm not sure which is which and where should it be used. I've search several forum for the info but there is not much info. Are you kind enough to tell me about it? I'm sure new commer are also interested to know their usage.

Which grease sould be use for:

1. differential ball
2. thrust ball in the differential
3. thrust ball in centax clutch
4. one way pully
5. bearing
6. servo gear
7. between outdrive and CVD

and there are some other grease that I'm not sure for their usage:

a. Tamiya Ceramic grease
b. Tamiya Molybdenum grease
(since they got names, I think they have some specific usage)

as well as

c. Associated clear grease
d. Associated black grease
(do you know actually which grease is inside?)

Thanks for your attention.

Oh. I've used the Tamiya Ceramic in one way bearings!
Then I'll get some Serpent one-way next time I visit LHS.

Along these same lines...

I've seen articles about cleaning and re-lubing bearings.

Many of them say to use a white lithium grease to re-lubricate the bearing before putting the shield back in place.

Who makes this stuff or where do u get it ? Anybody done this ?

Thanks.

very depending on the result you want to achieve. if you want speed, you need to only use very thin layer of lubricant oil such as serpent oneway oil.

If you want to protect the internal of the bearing for longer life. you need a thicker grease.

it is just a give and take choice.
