Mitsuwa Denshi's grease is Shin-Etsu Chemical G-40M, this is for high temperature lubrication and general use. It will be suitable for lubrication of sealed bearings, please choose according to your preference.
Some people often use Tamiya's grease for mini 4WD and RC cars, but we do not recommend it because of its different application and viscosity.

Since the main shaft of the PhreakMods EX-Groove Link quick release shaft is removable, two washers can get caught in the main shaft and cause it to come off or malfunction, so please be sure to use only one dust washer.
