    Well, if it's not the Moo-Slick I linked to, you can always use dry graphite powder

    However if you are talking bearings, I would just use grease and call it a day....

    This wax based lube came up in a thread the other day. Haven't tried it myself yet.

    TrakPower Krytech Dry Wax Lubricant. This lubricant is excellent for dirty, dusty conditions, and leaves no oily residue

    I used the blaster dry lube. Sprayed down everything with it. It worked really well for stopping mud/snow from sticking, but really didn't do much for lubricating the suspension and seemed to wear off fairly quickly. I don't think that I would bother a second time.

    I've been using wax lubes on mountain bike chains for more than a decade. Wax lubes were made to form a build up of wax. The idea is that the build up will seal dirt to some extent and any dirt that gets stuck in the wax will fall off along with a little wax. These generally don't work very well at getting into small places, don't stick well to plastics, and the build up can cause some binding. I haven't tried to use on the RC because I don't see any places were this will work well. Silicons seem to be better for RC applications.
