Hi everyone, a quick question regarding lube... When I get a bit of time, I'm hoping to tweak my Phantom 500 a bit. Has any one tried silicone grease instead of moly? I have an abundance of the stuff where I work (automotive parts manufacture) and it's used because of it's compatability with composit materials (rubber and plastics) and it's extreme heat resistance. It's crazy slippery too.

What are your thoughts/experiences with this stuff?

Thanks.

Silicone lube isn't good for metal to metal surface.

What he said above.

Silicon ok for plastics and some rubbers but if contacts metal to metal you will find it will gouges the two parts out like a course grinder in no time at all.
ie hinge pin and shims on break barrels
