I use Dr. D's Slicker-n-Snot Racing Oil that is specially made for me in a top secret facility at Slot Car Corner. It is very similar to Superlube. All oils are not created equal. Be sure to pick lubricants and cleaners that do not damage plastic.
With any slot car motor you do not want oil to get on the commutator. With early Slot.it orange endbell motors the problem was not usually with oil on the comm. The first release of motors used a new brush formularion and the dust from the brushes often got stuck in the slots in the commutator causing shorts. If the track had a big power supply the motor could be permanently damaged. The later release of orange end bell motors has not had this problem.
