Lightbulb MBX7R Gearbox

Hiya. So after assembling my front gearbox and doing a load of research id like to ask what is the best option regarding lubricant on the bevel and conical gears? ..... Dry Lubricant \ Grease \ Ceramic Coating

Also lastly how much should be applied?

Regards
Wes

Mobile 1 synthetic grease . Buy the tube . The grease is red it will last u for ever. Good for universals also for greasing the joints. And it wont swell up the o-rings. I have been using it since the MBX 6 buggy and I used it in my AGAMA A8 ,and now my TEKNO RC NB48.4 . Inside the gearbox where the main gear and the pinion gear meshes . Trust me . There's others lubes like 110% and team associated . But for the $ and quantity. Mobile one synthetic grease is the best . I hope this helps you and I hope u take my word for it

I use red and tacky from I think it's Lucas. A whole tube of it is like $6 and will last you 3 lifetimes.

I'd keep that dry . Yo much dirt will build up and will make the swaybars link bind up. It's not needed at all .
