Default Verona Racing Products aka VRP

In the late 80's there was an US based company called Verona Racing Products. They sold lubricants for r/c electric cars like diff lube, a special thin grease for bearings and some other products. What happened to this company? I still using their diff lube which is very thick so you to apply a very thin film on the diff-rings. If the company still excists where can I buy their products? If not, which company sells simillar products. Most lubricants I used for my diff are to thin.

I remember the company and I have some of the diff lube left. The owner of the company was Steve Verona. The last time I saw him he was going to make carb restricters for gas. I am not sure what happened to him.

Thanks for the info. I'm sure I have to look for another brand. Maybe I can use the flexshaft grease for my 1/8 hydroplane by Prahter which liiks similar to the grease of VRP.

Default lube

VRP= The best diff lube I used, would love to see this stuff come back. I think it would work even better today then back then. I think that the diff's of today could really use thicker lube especially in TC.
