    Is it a dry-type silicone or leave a wax-type coating.

    Anybody have a pic of their can. I have a friend that's a big-wig at Grainger so I want to see if he can get the right stuff.

    $19 a can!? Damn they're killing it. I got mine for $8 a can. Like Kinser said davet, just because everyone is using it doesnt mean it's the fastest stuff out there [​IMG]

    I am 100% certain that I screw up so many aspects, some a little-some a lot, of the build that the difference in spray prep probably isn't going to help or hurt me. If I can find a source for this tho I'll share it.

    Amazon sells it in a pink can. I read in another post that it was the same as the orange.

    Question from a novice, is there a difference between using Krytox and Jig? Is one superior to the other?

    jig is the spray that you put onto your axles after cleaning... you let that sit to get the accelerants off your axle...

    Then you use krytox to oil your axles/wheels.

    two different types of oil... two different steps in the process.

    Can you post the link? Really want to get my hands on some. I got max pro but would like some jig too so I can compare. Thanks

    Edit: nevermind I found it. Can anyone attest that this pink can jig is the same stuff? $50 is pretty pricey

    Pink is the same just in a small can. I can’t imagine paying $50 for a small can. The big can is about $6 US in Canada a Walmart.
