Does anyone know what type and weight the grease in the small tube that comes with the F1 shock is, and what other applications it is good for?

Anyone tried it in a stock Kyosho gear diff?

kyosho tube grease are yellow so they're the 15,000.
Too thick for gear diff, I tried 1000 & 5000 with really good results. I think 5000 was more in the sweet spot. use only a dab though, enough to cover satellite gears with a thick coating.

Thanks for the response! I have the 5,000 and will give it a try. But the grease in the tube didn't feel nearly as heavy or tacky as the 15,000 gear diff grease. :confused:

I noticed the same thing when squeezing out only a little out of the tube. At some point I was going to empty out an entire tube and give it a good mix to see if it will get close to heaviness of 15,000 out of the regular container but never got it.
