Just wondering what oil and grease everyone is using on spur/pinion gears and wheel bearings.
I have Ballistol and Inox MX3 can I use these on the wheel bearings?
I know only certain stuff can only go on certain parts so I thought it best to ask before I use the wrong stuff.

For RTR cars I use Labelle 108 as it is meant to be anti corrosive to plastic parts...for metal chassis I use Glidex.

I dont believe there is too much that can go wrong by using a different lubricant.

Main rule I follow is to use as little as possible and I never grease the motor groove in the crown wheel(bronze slotit).
I also rarely if ever lubricate gear teeth

I also recommend washing out the moving parts with fuelite and starting your lubrication regime over again..

Sorry for using "I" five times.
