I use Hobbico After Run Oil. It seems to work just fine. You can get a 2 oz. bottle of it at your LHS for like $2.50. I use it all the time and I've had the same bottle for two years. It should work well in any nitro motor.

You can also use Marvel Mystery oil.
You can find it at most major auto parts stores.
It also works in all nitro engines.

Take care.

Marvel Mystery oil is what alot of after-run oils are anyways. Much cheaper to buy it at an Auto Parts store.

Well over hear in australia we use castroll Dexton 3 automatic transmision fluid, and it works great because inside a transmission there is rubber seals , so it will keep your carby and motor seals looking like new excpecially your highly polished motor internals.

OH YEAH it's true! Same here theRED5. Forgot to mention in my earlier post that it doubles as an assembly lube. I'll never use anything else.

JordanC> sure there's remnants of oil left in the enine. The problem is the nitromethane that's in the fuel, too. It ATTRACTS moisture, and will overpower the castor oil left in there.

If you want an engine to last, use SOME sort of after run oil, I prefer Marvel.
