JConcepts have introduced their new Bronze medium thickness lubricant for bearings and other applications. After considerable testing, the RM2 Bronze oil is the stand-out lubricant in the pits of 2-time IFMAR World Champion, Ryan Maifield. When it comes to a simple touch up to oil bearings, CVA’s or any surface that needs a little friction reduction, apply a liberal amount of the oil to coat the area for a fresh life. A simple bottle and packaging make for easy access and quick transport to and from the races.

Time to get to work. See you at the track!
