Default Can someone recommend a silicone safe after run oil?

I have in my pit box a bottle of Hobbico after run oil but i'm not sure it's silicone safe.

I'll be breaking in my jlr red dot tomorrow and i just realized that it may need a special brand of after run oil. I googled '' silicone safe after run oil'' but not much popped out. At Murnan Modified i found a bottle but it costs 40$ for shipping to Canada. (shopping basket software shot an overseas ems price).

Any suggestions?

I have been using Mobil1 Full Synthetic Motor Oil for many years. It is less expensive than whatever after-run, one quart uses long time

Go to your local Marine dealer and buy spray can of "Fogging Oil" it is made for spraying into the cylinders of engines that are going to sit through a winter ... or in my case in Florida sit through Summer. $5.99

I'll call you monday Sam.

i've also heard of people using air tool oil. I have some Wal-mart tech 2000 air tool oil sitting around. (temporary solution for a few weeks).

Hi Charles - I hadn't seen this thread earlier...

I carry an after run oil that will not cause any damage to the silicone ramping putty. It also is available with a syringe applicator and instructions that make it easy to add after running without taking out the glow plug or removing the airfilter element and exposing your engine's internals to dirt at the track. A larger refill size is available also.

GMK Supply "Afterlife" after run oil

Some of the other products mentioned are OK to use as an ARO in engines that don't have a silicone ramped crank, but they don't play nicely with the silicone over time. My oil and these cranks get along just fine, and it is also easy on the glow plugs, as well as supplying superior protection against rust.

Available at many fine RC retailers including A Main, Carolinas RC, Nitrohouse, RC Compound, SMF Store, Bluegrass Hobbies, Tilted RC, Full Throttle, GS Hobbies, Mod Hobby and others, including dealers in Europe.

I would recommend the Synthetic automobile oil in either 0w30 or 5w30 viscosity. I use Mobil 1, Petronas Syntium or Castrol Edge.
Havent had any issues and its definately kept the motor bearings a lot healthier for a longer period of time and doesnt gum up or affect silicone.
Been using it in my Cobra X for a good few months now as well as my onroad engines.
Also great for use on bearings and bushings.
