Pretty much need a replacement for Crosman RMCOIL its impossible to get around here and expensive to boot.

How about Traxxas 1666? http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/traxxas-traxxas-1666-silicone-shock-oil-1666/10217005.aspx

I already picked up a couple of these bottles in the city on my last trip, but uncertain as I cannot find a Material safety sheet. Anyone have first hand experience?

Yes. It is an effective and much cheaper substitute. The brand I use is Team Losi Racing. It does not diesel.

Been using it for years as I was really in to the RC thing a few years ago and the bigger cars have pretty darn large shocks on them now with large reservoirs, so I had quite a few different weights laying around, depending on the damping I required for a particular car.

I also like the silicone spray cans, but NOT FOR COMPRESSION CHAMBER use. The carrier agent is usually flammable and will cause you serious problems, however spray silicone oil is good for getting in to those tight areas without disassembling everything, although Remington dry film lube works well too.

*EDIT: I'm sure someone will mention it, so yes, moly paste is what I use when I have the time to do everything properly, even on the sides of the seal and of course piston.

I am big into R/C car racing, and also air guns. When buying shock oil for your gun, try to find the lowest weight(wt) oil. Traxxas oil is 30wt. If you buy the team losi racing stuff, try to by 15wt or the lowest you can find because it will be thinner.

Interesting...I've found that the airgunners I know have quite a few common interests.
One is RC. Our family at the moment have a number of Traxxas Slash, a couple stock for my two sons and one I've modded quite a bit.
I've found that other common interests are knives, watches and cameras.
What about you guys?
