Help with lubing Gearbox/transmission etc

I have finished building a Savage SS. I have never built a car/truck
before and need some help on where to Grease/lube.

The transmission has been lubed a with the grease that came with it.
Am I supopsed to lube the main spur gear that attaches to the engine?
Anything else I should lube? Many thanks!

In short lube any moving parts that encounter friction...except the clutch
of course, it won't do any harm.

YOu don't lube the spur gear or the clutch bell - the lube would just
attract tons of dirt and cause premature wear.

Uhh .. . NO!

Do not lube any gears that are not sealed in a gearbox. They will only
fling dirty grease all over your chassis and attract dirt.

Any gears that are sealed, like the inside of the diffs and tranny, you can
lube with good results.

Hi,

The diffs need lubing with the gunk that comes with the kit but the centre
transmission / gearbox is designed to run dry - if you grease it the gear
change gets all messed up etc.

Cheers

I think not lubing the brake is common sense which is why I did not mention
it, I also mentioned about not lubing the clutch. All cars pick up dirt and
muck elsewhere regardless of running (remember the exhaust does this very
well all over the chassis unless you have a dedicated exhaust tailpipe which
is fitted onto my Nephews car, simple mod but helps keep the car cleaner
that it normally is and looks great...!!!!
This car is normally cleaned after every session anyway so dirt and gunk is
not a problem in this case. ( I have a very keen and enthusiastic 15 yr old
Nephew who owns this car and knows the importance of looking after it, he is
the envy of his mates as his car is very relaible and runs consistent every
time....usually starting at first pull on the pullstart)....and how does he
know...??? ............from me............. 28 years in the Hobby, 24 of
those in R/C... and 20 of those flying Helicopters and there you lube
everything except the clutch....!!!!!

The point I was trying to make (with common sense of course) is any thing
that needs free movement, then lube it...(with the obvious exceptions I have
mentioned above).

Good simple after care after a days session will keep your model going well
for years.....as many of my models will show..I have 3 now aged 20 yrs plus
and still working.....another 2 will be 20 next year....!!!!


Regards..............Mark.
