See: Modelix Racing

Modelix have added to the Ultimate range the “Hi-Speed” bearing oil. This oil was designed for use in bearings to keep them rolling free and smooth to help you get the most out of them every race. Over the years the Modelix team has experimented with many different types of oils and oil formulas and have found this Hi-Speed Bearing Oil to be the best for keeping bearings smooth and clean, so they last longer and run better. Very good for use on dusty tracks and carpet tracks to combat the effects of dust and carpet hair contamination. Recommended for use immediately after bearing cleaning. The Ultimate Hi-Speed bearing oil comes in a 20ml durable and leak-proof bottle.
