    Graphite dry lube

    I was looking for PB Blaster dry lube but could only find this graphite lube.

    Is anyone else using graphite type lubricant? Any opinions on using this type of dry lube? (its great at not collecting dust and dirt.

    Graphite is VERY fine dust, and IMO, that isn't the best. I have the P'B Blaster dry lube, and it works well, it just smells really odd. I normally just use a lube for bike chains. It's liquid teflon, so when it dries, it doesn't let dirt or dust stick to it. Works great! Hope this helps!

    Don't feel bad, it took me forever to figure out what IMO, MERV, ERBE, P2DE, P4DE, EMBE, and Rusty meant.
    MERV= Mini E-Revo VXl
    ERBE= E-Revo Brushless edtion
    P2DE= Stampede 2wd
    EMBE= E=Maxx brushless edtion
    Rusty= Rustler

    i normally only use graphite based lubes for locks/padlocks/ignition systems which are dry.

    how do they hold up for bashing RCs?

    well considering all the dust and dirt, dry lube the way to go. wet lubes attract dirt, turn into abrasive mud-grease and then sand away your joints like that girly exfoliating hand soap with the chunks in it.

    Dry lube work well you can spray it all over it the whole truck doesn't attract dirt and works well, I spray mine down after every couple runs with it, has kept everything pretty clean and rust free as well

    I've always used PB Blaster dry lube with excellent results. I'm am currently trying out this graphite stuff and it seems to be doing a great job. I find that I have to be a bit careful not to spray it where not intended as the fine dust tend to be hard remove from plastic...only an issue if its not black

    Um, is graphite lube a conductor? If there was enough of it of course.

    Graphite is, in fact, conductive.

    I'm going to pick some up this weekend. Do you just spray the entire truck down with it?
