Slot Car Setup And Lube

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am still very new to slot cars, i am setting up a sclextric dbr9 pro performance car.

 

the rear has bearings, do i lube these and what kind of oil and what do i put on the gears.

 

Also is there any thing a should put on the chrome scalextric stripts to prevent corrosion.

 

Sorry if this has been asked in previous posts.

 

And any other tips please :-)

I had to go see what was what..................

 

The bearings have balls so any of the slot car oils.

 

The gears are plastic so I would use same.

 

BUT

 

NSR Make a dedicated plastic lube

Inox MX3 for track rails - sparingly. I use this on a mobile track. It hadn't been used for 6 mths, but only had one bad connection when tried. Ran for 3hrs per day for next 3 days with no problems
