Can changing the grease in my ride-on car really make it faster?


Ride-on manufacturers use an "OMG sticky thick" grease in their gearboxes which causes a lot of resistance inside the gearbox. Spin your gearbox by hand and you can feel that you have to overcome the grease like stepping in bubble gum.

We actually worked with lubricant specialists to create a grease SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR HIGH-SPEED PLASTIC-GEARED TOY GEARBOXES. It's a molybdenum grease that will coat the gears and REDUCE RESISTANCE significantly. Your gearbox will spin freer allowing your motor to accelerate quicker, reach higher rpm's, and reduce strain on it!

MLToys Racing Grease has been tested in below freezing conditions and desert temperatures not to break down. It will not need to be replaced or reapplied in the life of your vehicle.

One order includes a Tub-O-Grease with enough to do 2 gearboxes.

1. Clean all of the original grease out of your gearbox. MLToys grease will not adversely react with your old grease so it's not a problem if you can't get every last bit cleaned.
2. Using your finger, apply Racing Grease lightly between the teeth of all of the gears. The smaller teeth gears are more important to lube well. It's ok if you don't coat every single tooth as it will circulate around the gearbox.
3. Put a small amount of grease on the shafts that the gears spin on.
4. Do not grease the portion of the output gear that the axles spins on. That part is exposed to the elements and will attract dirt if it is lubed.
5. Reassemble the gearbox without the motor and spin the output shaft by hand for a minute until you can feel the grease is distributed evenly. Some of the grease will fling off the gears but a lubricating Teflon residue will be left behind - speed!
6. Have fun!

New grease December 13, 2016
Reviewer: Byron from Elon, NC United States  
It took a roll of paper towels to clean out the old factory grease. The new race grease made it quieter but we didn't notice a speed increase on the stock gearbox.

Super good parts and service June 16, 2016
Reviewer: Chad Frederick from Watertown, NY United States  
I have bought several parts for my sons derby power wheels from ML toys. He runs it almost every weekend in 10 minute derby heats. The parts from ML toys are reliable and the service is second to none. The grease will and does make a difference. Spin the gears before and after the grease installation and you will certainly feel the difference.
