So science wise….

3000 Grit for Dry Lubes

100,000 Grit for oils

However, may have raced with 100k for graphite with great results as feedback will show. Science says graphite is carbon, diamond is carbon. If you polish higher than 3k and you were to take a scope and look at things, the graphite will knock the shine off your 100k axles down to about 3k on the surface of things.

Can you pack Derby Dust Dry Lube?

Quick answer is NO.  The flake size is too big.  -325 mesh graphite will the the packable graphite.  Do we recommend it?  I have read a few posts where cars were dq because the judges interpreted it is a graphite bearing.  Because of this, we do not suggest.

I have no idea what level of polish should I get?

This is based soley on lube and amount of work you intend to put into breaking in the car.

Graphite Lube – 3K, with proper graphite break-in

Oil Lube – 100k

If you are simply going to dust with graphite and race, not doing a BREAK – IN for graphite – 100K will give you the least amount of friction for multiple races

So many wheels choices.  I have no idea what I can use.

Rule of thumb the lighter the wheel, the faster the car can go.  Try this neat little Decision Tree that I setup.  If you are still unsure, then send me a text 210.219.3977
