I found some great Kingpin lube. It is very thick. It comes in the HPI micro fornt end tuning kit, I found it in my box, and it seems it is going to work well. What does everybody else use?

Extreme Pressure Lube, $34 a tube. I just "borrow" it from work though. This stuff is right, its sticky and it doesnt seem to get alot of dirt build up either. I also use it on the diff.

I've been using Losi hydra drive fluid also, which thickness works the best? the writing is wore off on the bottle and I don't remember which one it is I have, I'm about to need some more.

SPEED GOOP, is GREAT stuff...Thick and slick (not sticky), I find that 1/8 scale lube is to sticky...besides 1/8 scale lube take to much motor spray to break down (motor spray isn't cheap! LOL). Steve.

I must say I have never used any type of front kingpin lube/dampening fluid. I would think that it would mostly attract dirt. So what are the benifits to using the lube/dampening fluid on the front end?

I would say that's it's imperative that you use some form of lube on the front king pins it makes the front end work so much smoother and keeps it from binding up,get some of john's goop and you will know what I mean immediately.

ballxblazer, the lube is also use for slowing the rate the spring works. if u use a really thick lube the spring will seem to react slower. if u use thin it will react faster.
