Default Lubricant

Hi, just got a new T-rex 450xl CDE, and the instructions say I need silicone lubricant...well, I have some lubricant that I used to use on my brushed electric r/c car motors, should I use that or no? I also have some shock oil from an old r/c car kit that specifically says 'silicone oil' on the front, could I use that or no? It says I will use this lube on o-rings. I figure you vets out there should know this one. Thanks!

Use Triflow. It's available at most bicycle shops.

RC Cars have very sofisticated shocks that use silicon oil for damping. (At least the RC car guys say they're sofisticated.. )

For my handguns I use Rem oil w/teflon. Started using it with my helis with awsome results. Its silky smooth not to oily. and leaves a coating of teflon. You can find it at any gun store. and some sporting stores like bass pro. @ 10.00 a spray can though. But it works great ! give it a try

M249,

I use a Dupont Teflon spray, you can get it at the hardware store, Lowes, Menards, Home Depot. Big can was 6 bucks, works very well.
