Are all dry graphite lubricants the same? I heard Hob-E-Lube is the best. Can you run one race with one type of dry graphite, then switch to a different for another race or will that make things worse. I'm racing Saturday, then again in March. These are Pinewood Derbies. Thanks, rock on!!!!

My son has one more year of racing in Cubs. He has three 1st place and one second place using Bullet Lube from Derby Champ. After the first win we just stuck with it. He's placed 1st and 3rd at District,too.
I have tried all the graphites. There are many experienced pro racers out there that will tell you that there is not much difference in performance between graphites. I have two containers of Zero Friction. It has rather large flakes and it is expensive. I prefer the cheap Hob-E-Lub and it does well for my Scout. He built a large majority of his car for pack and he beat all the other cars by 0.1 seconds on Hob-E-Lube. We use Max V graphite for the Derby Worx Wheels with the small bores. It is easier to get into the bore area! Murph SLT
