Depends what the gears are made of and depends which gears you want to lube...probably worth waiting until you get some decent grease?

Be carefull with grease, because any grease will attract dust.
At the end it will function as a fine grit sandpaper.
So depends where/which gear you are planning to lubricate.
No lubricant is needed for the exposed plastic to plastic mesh between the spur and pinion gear.

Otherwise, try to work with a "dry" lubricant for exterior application.
- Jig-A-Loo. Dry silicon base spray can (Ace Hardware/Spinneys).
- Du-Pont. A tube dry wax based lubricant (Ace Hardware).

from my experience in both drag racing and drifting ( u can say touring as well)
you can just use some cooking oil

no no am not kidding its from an advice given to me from a pro and since then no gear ruined !!!!

as long as the mesh is correct you can go for it ( frequent cleaning and re oiling is a must )

u can compare it to a cooking plate !! it heats ans heats and no remains of the cook if u use oil

if u need another way ( the usual right way ) bearing grease can be found in radio shack for a price of 8 dirhams ( or around)

I would go with Mister-e advice, no need for lube on the pinion spur side. This is more exposed than the gearboxes, and more likely to get sand in...any lube there will make a nice grinding paste....and if it is a crap Tamiya pinion, it will disintegrate to make a nice, shiny metallic paste....lol
In the TT-01 gearboxes, that silicone spray will work very well....and you need very LITTLE of it. I run no grease in my mini gearboxes, I merely give them a hint of air tool oil when building...and use anti-wear grease in the diff gears, just to tighten them up a bit.

Not so sure I would use cooking oil....but it may work for some.....thing is, it is food-based, and thus is likely to break down fairly rapidly (digestive systems require this) and as it is doing so, it is likely to gum up......and stink..

but hey, what ever blows your hair back...lol

If you can go to ACE hardware, look for DuPont Chain saver it is an industrial lubricant and we use that in our chains. You spray them in liquid form but after 10 mins it becomes a thin coating of Teflon. It doesn't attract dust and dirt, We've been using that for high speed applications and our chains never bugged down. It is O ring safe and wont make your plastics soft. I guess, this is better than using a petroleum jelly. BTW, No cleaning required when using this lubricant since it has a self cleaning agent, just wipe the excess wax afterwards

Joe, ususally only on alloy/metal gears.....the plastics will take a silicone/waxy lube, as long as it is plastic safe

Are you looking for ball diff grease? Or the other one AW (anti-wear) grease?

If it's for the ball diff, I suggest you check in T&U if they have stock. Petroleum jelly is too thick and attracts too much dust.

If it's the AW grease...then I have yet to find a substitute.

If you're talking about Anti-wear grease...Tamiya makes some.

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/WTI0001P?I=LXWB00&P=8


In my opinion, open up the gearboxes (front and rear), and all the other moving parts once every 2 months. Or if you use your kit very, very often, or just for personal satisfaction, you can do it once a month.

P.S, your TT01 has ball differentials? Impressive.

Hmm...Tell ya' what. You can't accomplish anything today (Friday)...Unless you manage to find the right grease from a building materials shop tomorrow.

But 'soon as you get up on Saturday, call up all hobby stores, ask 'em all if they have any.
Hobby zone, Hobby center, speed hobbies, toys and us, etc. I'd post the numbers...But man I'm sleepy. Call 181 and ask 'em for the number...Lol.

I don't know how you could remove the old black grease (I only take care of things on the TT01 when they are broken...), just soak 'em in water, wash them until it's off..Then wait for them to try, and re lube everything back together...The more experienced amongst us probably have some better advice to offer though.

I just found out last week that there was a AW grease tube available from Tamiya. hmpp.... =/

Anyway, as for the degreaser...WD40 should do the job. =)

Josh...The AW grease tube should have come with your TA05 O_o

About the WD40. Yeah..Come to think of it, it should work fine.

...The world has to thank WD40. One of the most awesome things ever.
...Along with zip ties, ball bearings, electric tape and wax paper.

Lol.

Joe,

stay away from the CRC degreaser that will weaken plastics, but should be fine on the dog bones..

go passed Ace hardware, they have a natural citrus based de-greaser (it smells like oranges- hahaha....seriously) in an aerosol can in the car maintenance section, that will get rid of your old grease.....and be kind to the environment at the same time.....or you can try a concentrated solution of simple green and warm water....

if you plan on playing alot in the dirt, a coat of wd40 will help protect it, it will prevetn the dirt from sticking hard to the parts and make it much easier to blow off the dirt using a compressor....
