Graphite Grease

Where can I buy "Graphite Grease"? I need it to complete my new Serpent 705 kit, yet I have no idea where to get it. My LHS doesn't have it and the people at Home Depot have never heard of graphite grease before.

Anyone know of any online sites in which I can order it online?

Thanks

Even I've never heard of "graphite grease" before. Could you be talking about graphite lube? It's available at any auto parts store and comes in a little sqeeze bottle like thread lock. It's made by Permatex(same people behind "loctite").

What exactly are you using it for anyway? You could probably find an alternative maybe even one that you already have.

Hpi Red cap greese is very similar to a graphite grease. But if your talking about a dry graphite lube, you can get it at a place where pinewood derby cars are sold.

Graphite grease and molly grease are the same as far as I know. It is available at auto parts stores in tub form.

I use ronnie greese instead on my 705. Works great!.

You might want to get the Serpent 1-way lube for your 1-way bearings. Punisher had show 1 of the link where u can get on-line.

Post your questions on the 705 tread if u need some building tips. Or you might want to read all the replies posted from day 1 on the 705 tread for some building tips and performance tune.

I started reading the 705 thread, but there are just so many junk posts with random chit chat that makes it impossible to weed out the good information.

Not sure why people started threads like that in the first place, I find it a lot more efficient to just make a new thread whenever you have a question or have a dedicated forum for each car or company, it's a lot more organized that way instead of just having 3000 posts one after another with no real way to sort through it.
