Customizing and TuningGun oil in axles

  • Jump to last reply

I've heard that gun oil can be used in races where it is allowed. Is gun oil as good (or better) than graphite? And after a little while, will dust and grime build up in the axles and slow the car down? I'm thinking about getting some and experimenting with it.

THE RULES HERE ARE DRY LUBE ONLY,
MOST OILS BREAKDOWN PLASTICS [PETROLIUM BASED], AT DIFFERENT RATES...
NO ONE WANTS IT ON THEIR PLASTIC TRACKS, NOT TO MENTION YOUR PLASTIC WHEELS...
[TIME] YOUR STOCK AXLES AFTER A FINGER SPIN...
SAVE YOUR MONEY FOR BUYING TUNGSTON WEIGHTS...
AS A TEST ;
JUST PULL THE TRANSMITION DIP STICK FROM AN AUTOMATIC CAR, LET IT DRIP TRANNY FLUID ONTO YOUR AXLES... SPIN, SPIN, SPIN... TEST TIME THE SPIN...
THEN WIPE THE AXLE DRY, SPIN, SPIN, WIPE TILL YOU CAN'T SEE ANY OIL ON A WHITE PAPER TOWEL...
TEST AND TIME THE SPIN... COMPARE THE TEST TIMES AND LET US KNOW...

OK Thanks Smitty, I probably won't get any now since it could do damage to the wheels/track over time. Plus if it came out and got on the car's paint job I don't think it would be pretty
