    I believe you are talking about 2 stroke oil. You need some lithium grease, often referred to as marine grease. Its the white, almost clear grease.

    Any grease will work just as well though.

    I completely agree. Also, maybe make the racing stripe down the middle and the rims the same color, like tan, or olive.

    Jamespshepp,

    If you melted your motors end cap, you ran your motor WAYYY too hot! These motors have a 200f max temp. To do that on a 2wd slash means you were improperly geared.
