These are bottles of Liquid Bearings, the now-legendary oil that everyone has loved that has ever purchased it (100% positive feedback).These are brand new 1-fluid-oz. bottles with the characteristic needle dispenser tip.
This is the synthetic lubricant that consistently outperforms all others currently available. It attains DOUBLE the performance in the metal-to-metal grind tests of other oils, and has incredible low and high-temperature characteristics, which is absolutely necessary for proper slot car lubrication but completely lacking in petroleum-based oils. Don't use them on your Aurora cars any longer! Actual oils leave sticky deposits when the short-chain molecule components evaporate over time.
Petro-oils vs. synthetics:
Petroleum-based oils lack both the lubrication performance and oxidation stability of synthetics. Real oil is made up of a mixture of long and short chains of carbon and hydrogen atoms, and under certain conditions the short-chain molecules evaporate, and the unstable molecules oxidize and break down. This leaves a sticky residue which can actually “gum up” the device it was intending to lubricate. Conventional oils also contain varying amounts of impurities, such as sulfur, waxes, and unstable hydrocarbons which are left behind as residue deposits.
In contrast, synthetic oils are made using a process that re-arranges the structure so all the molecules are uniform in size, shape, and weight, an ideal phenomenon which does not occur in nature. While petroleum-based oils that are extracted from the ground must then be refined to attempt to minimize their shortcomings, synthetics are custom-designed to produce the ultimate lubricant, with inherent performance characteristics vastly superior to any petro-oil.
Using synthetics after using petro-oils:
It is perfectly safe to begin using Liquid Bearings on all your slot cars immediately, even if you have been lubricating them with conventional oils for years or decades. It is fully compatible with all vintage and current oils, and will eventually flush away the residue of the evaporated real oil over time. You will easily notice that all of your pivot points, slides, wheels, bearings, and gears will move and roll easier with Liquid Bearings, especially if you have been using petroleum-based oil on them for years.
The odorless lubricant:
One of the most pleasing characteristics of Liquid Bearings is that it is engineered to be essentially odorless!! It is such a pleasure to work with your cars for hours and not have everything, including your clothing and hands, smelling of oil! Compare it to any other lubricant, petro or synthetic, and you will prefer working with Liquid Bearings!
Also, when you have been running your car for hours and it gets really warmed up, that familiar smell that comes from the hot engine is the petroleum products in the oil breaking down from the heat, and the short-chain molecules and impurities evaporating, which leaves behind the sticky residue deposits. Liquid Bearings maintains its molecular structure to over 500 degrees F, with no evaporation or breakdown, and hence no smell or residue.
This fully synthetic proprietary blend is suitable for all slot car uses, whether on engine bearings and gears, friction points of mating or sliding metal parts, wheel bushings, or general rust and corrosion prevention. It will not attract or retain dirt and contaminants like petroleum-based oils do.
Please note that there is a “synthetic oil” trick which some manufacturers are playing on consumers. Recently relaxed rules in the labeling and classifying of oil products now allow up to 30% of an oil to be derived from petroleum-based products and still call itself synthetic! Don’t be fooled! Liquid Bearings contains only 100% synthetic components and no petroleum products. It is an incredible lubricant that will also immediately begin to remove the deposits left by years of petroleum lubrication!
The bottle & needle tip:
The bottle is made from HDPE and is very soft to use. The high quality stainless steel 18-gauge dispensing needle lets you lubricate your cars precisely, without getting the oil on the rest of the car. The needle utilizes the patented Luer Lock which is used on pharmaceutical supplies and is top quality. It has a leak-proof scabbard which covers the tip of the needle between uses. Many other hobby oils come with crude plastic nozzles which literally drool out the oil. Liquid Bearings is able to be placed exactly where you want it every time, drop by drop!
