Hi All,

I have been searching around on eBay and online for a replacement grease (Z164 part number), and I am struggling to find any suppliers who has any in stock.

Can anybody recommend a suitable replacement?

I have been searching on some forums, and a few people are recommending ‘Moly Axle’ by Schumacher.

Can anyone vouch for this product?

I and rebuilding a few savages and need something that’s going to be as good or better as the HPI grease Z164.

Cheers!

I use lucas red-n-tacky. Sticks to gears well and seems to do a good job. Some say it harms plastic, but I haven't seen that. Those that are concerned used silicone based grease instead.

This stuff is silicone safe and I've seen it suggested a few times for diff gears (ring/pinion):

Thank you all for the replies! I will order some of this looks good stuff and will last longer than those small tubs :).

Thank you!

... how often do you change the grease? Do you find this stuff lasts long? How do you determine when it should be replaced?

I used CowRC Utter Butter on my last rebuild of the diffs. I'll have to look into some chain wax for outdrives and dog bones

Where can I get that at auto parts store or???
It's for bicycle chains, so a bicycle shop, or amazon:

Shake it before applying it. I have mine in a different bottle with a longer nozzle to make it less messy to apply as the bottle it comes in likes to dump out a lot more than you need for RC stuff. I just have to make sure to clear the nozzle after using it each time or the stuff dries in the nozzle and clogs it.
