Hi SKIZZ,

Sorry for my late reply mate.

In regards to the gear oil / lubricants, I use a variety of types for different mechanical areas.

For the diff bevel and crown gears specifically, I use this:

TAMIYA CERA HG GREASE

Below are the other grease types I use:

XCEED (#103245) TEFLON GREASE

http://www.asiatees.com/display?Miscellaneous-All-Parts-Hop-Ups-Upgrades&brand=Miscellaneous&model=All&id=86247&pid=1&rc_pal=3138333932

TAMIYA AW (ANTI-WEAR) GREASE

TAMIYA VG BALL DIFF GREASE

For the application of the various grease types for the diffs you can refer to this article:

Hope that helps. :)

As always, great info. Now time to scour eBay for these and make an order. Build log coming soon hopefully.

Hey SKiZZ,

Thanks mate. Glad it is helpful :)

In regards to those greases I listed, some of them you can find on eBay but I found that AsiaTees had the best prices and last I checked had them all in stock.

Just as a suggestion, you can save yourself the hassle of finding them on eBay and buying from multiple sellers. If you click on the links under each title, it will take you to the actual product on AsiaTees.

I look forward to seeing your build log.

Cheers. :)

Hey JayzRC,

Yes its been a while since my last build update. :(

Work has been incredibly busy for me the last few months. Travelling interstate and OS for work has prevented me from publishing my new build material but now things are starting to settle down freeing up some time for my hobbies.

I will try to upload some more of the completed RC18T build stages soon.

Thanks for taking an interest in the build though. I really appreciate it. :)

Cheers. :)

Looks like things have settled down and I can work on getting a solid work bench for my RC stuff setup. I need to clean out 15 years of old computer crap but it will be done in the next couple days.

Finally got all of the lubes in. What did you use to apply them?

Hey SKIZZ,

Sorry about my late reply mate.

About the application of the lubes.... The tools you see me using in my article are custom made applicators. The pin looking tool, I made them from 1.5mm dia. piano wire, or the white spatula, I made from plastic strips. Hope that helps. :)

Cheers.

If you ever make more of those gear covers or let the plans go so I can get one printed that would be awesome.
