    Diff Oil Alternative

    My current kit that I am building seems to have not come with any Diff. Oil, but it did come with 3 other oils. Could any of these be another name for diff. oil or counld any of them work?

    Ceramic grease
    Molyboenum Grease
    Damper Oil


    If none of those work I have silicone-in-a-can (not WD-40, just regular SIAC) would that work?

    RE: Diff Oil Alternative

    Ok, searching around I saw that the ceramic and the molybdenum grease are both for the differentials. Should I use one over the other?

    RE: Diff Oil Alternative

    Molyboenum Grease

    Most entry level kits do not come with diff oil, they just want you to grease the gears. The ceramic grease is for outside the diff, for the ring and pinion. In your manual, it should tell you which grease to use. Each little bottle/container should have a part number on it.

    in tamiya kits they usualy give you ceramic greas or moly for the gearboxes / diffs.

    my cr-01 uses cernamic grease
    tt-01 uses the moly
    Tiger 1 uses the ceramic grease in its gearboxes.

    RE: Diff Oil Alternative

    i use auto bearing synthetic grease for the inside of the gear box, and sil-glyde for the ring/input gears.

    if its open i use just synthetic grease.
    if its a small scale i use sil-glyde only.


    to each his own.
