Tip of the Week: 11/25/2012 No Mess Gear Lube

If you didn’t know your fellow RC’ers are judging you, let me be the bearer of bad news. For example, a loud (as in grinding gears) RC car sounds hack. The problem is greasing gears such as pinion and spur gears will attract grime and make matters much worse. The no mess solution may be right down the hall. Traditional bar soap works as an excellent gear lubricant for exposed gears. It is a great dry lube that will not attract dirt and doesn’t have to go on as a liquid and dry. Of course, setting proper gear mesh still is step one.
