i think fuel by petrol not the fuel we use for our cars.
i suppose it might leave some blue stain if you used blue thunder.

i guess normal bearing oil would suffice if you cant get the Tamiya's fuch's oil.

Well come on share the secret
Me and a friend raced a 2 day event this week end and stripped 2nd gear about 5 times
Just a bump from some 1 else or a slight touch on the boards and 2nd gear gone.

Hey, ... I've been thinking that we are cleaning our cars without environmental responsbility. The use of motor spray polluted the air. The waste from fuel to clean our cars and engine also damage our sewer system...... hhmmm. What shall we do to keep our earth beautiful ?

LoL...CRIMINALS!!



Who cares about those 5.4L expeditions and those 8.0L vipers and all of the 100's of thousands of cars on the road everyday (or oil refineries, nuclear waste depots, etc)...Nito r/c car drivers are the REAL culprits!!

They are, and they also make fuel efficient regular cars.

That's why they are not in such deep sh.t like Ford and GM
