Green slime is the old standby, I believe the first product to seal and protect silicone o-rings in the RC world. Still as good as many of the o-ring lubes available. Green Slime appears to be repackaged Noleen SF-3 High Performance Suspension Grease "formulated to reduce static and sliding friction..."
Same exact color, smell and texture only you can get a 2oz. tub of SF-3 for $9.99. I believe Cliff Lett was the first to use this stuff on rc car shock o-rings as he was a former Motocross mechanic for a factory team before joining AE in the late 80s, so I am 99% sure Green Slime is unaltered Noleen SF-3 sold in tiny little tubes!
This is not intended for use with nitro engine applications....it is meant to be used with shock o-rings, nothing else.
If you want to seal up your engine use:
The best grease for the o-rings, it keep them lube and it seal your diffs and shocks...
I use this on my shock o-rings and seals. No leaks. Runs nice and smooth.
I bought this to build the shocks on my TLR nitro buggy. Great stuff, probably will never use even a quarter of the tube. Maybe after 100 brand new shock builds you may use half the tube, MAYBE.
Worked like a charm! I added this to my Factory Team kit order when I placed it and was satisfied with the results. Yes, you can use shock oil in place of this stuff, but It's a small price to pay for a lubricant that really does work. I would added it again in a heartbeat if I was building another kit.
Amazing job from AE. If you want your shocks to feel like butter, then this is what you need! I run everything Associated, so I run the big bores with the low friction o rings...this stuff makes it feel even better! A must for having your shocks feel good and consistant and keep you in the A-MAIN!!!! Is that why they call this place A Main Hobbies...hahah!!
A must have for building shocks and diffs it helps o rings last forever.
This stuff is awesome! i used it on my helicopter for the tail belt for super smooth travel and didn't deteriorate the rubber
Use it to seal your engine up around the back plate and carby!! Great stuff.
