i managed to get a 4.5? oz spray bottle of inox mx3 from a supplier on that auction site and I just pour the contents into a needle oiler instead. You can also buy .5oz needle oilers there too. I had a few left over from a previous purchase of oiler bottles, so I just used those. Seems to work great, and the bottles don't ever over lube my target.
I use Nano-oil on all parts. I have not used grease on any gears in quite awhile. As mentioned, ATF can be corrosive on certain parts so I'd be careful with that, and WD-40 is not technically a lubricant so I have stayed away from that too. A bottle of Mobil 1 synthetic would last a lifetime for a slot car user, I recall seeing that recommended in another lube-ish thread awhile ago.
I wonder why Milan uses Vaseline? I can't imagine something like that would stand up to any stress or heat. For cleaning braids and that sort of thing, I use Deoxit red, and I use a solution made for cleaning the rubber rollers in photocopiers for cleaning urethane tires.
Yes, INOX MX3 comes in a pump and a needle applicator, depending on where you buy it. 132slotcar.us sells (and will ship to Canada) the needle bottle. I don't like the larger bottle for day to day use, so I bought a couple small needle bottles that I filled with the stuff. Perfect size for the slot box. http://www.132slotcar.us/store/produ...oducts_id=4945
I tried armourall on my track surface and didn't like it much. I prefer a grab-it type dust cloth or damp and dry cloths.
I like Inox but I made some stuff with Marvel Mystery Oil and a little Ispropyl Alcohol and put it in a applicator bottle works better on braids, and is a real good tire conditioner, especially foamys
