STOP!!! 2.5M is way thicker than petroleum jelly, but that's not the whole story. The way the fluid reacts under pressure, how "sticky" it is, etc, all matter as much as viscosity. Use a silicone fluid designed for the purpose, or you'll be cleaning a heck of a mess from the gearbox, motor, axles, off the track surface...

I'm working on a "home brew" steering solution...
I look forward to seeing this. I improvised something recently, as I misplaced the tiny washer Tamiya sent out as a revision for the steering. I made a tiny ring of 0.5mm solder and squashed it into place. Perfect!
