Refill Bottle with Twist Top Dispenser Cap
Some of our Vintage Slot Car Clubs that have given Thunder Oil the stamp of approval:
The Red Aurora Model Motoring Special Racing Oil lives on!
OK, Lets go with Sherman and Mr. Peabody and hop in the Wayback Machine for a trip back to the early 60's. It's Christmas morning, and Santa has left you a shiny new Aurora Model Motoring ThunderJet 500 HO race set. Oh man, this is soooo neat. Dad helps you set it up, and you break out the cars to take your first laps, and wow, do they squeak! They need oil! Fortunately, Santa also left a little 1/3 ounce jar of Red Aurora Model Motoring Special Racing Oil, No.14-25, with that plastic stick in the cap, like the Service Manual shows. He knew you would need it. You oil up your new T-Jets, and now they run just fine. And that smell of Pancake Motors and Red Oil. MMMMMMMM!
All right, back to the Wayback Machine, and now it's the late 90's. You found all your old HO slotcars in the attic, and remember how much fun it was. Set it all up again, and boy, oh boy, do those cars squeak again, and your bottle of red oil has only a little bit left. You want to get more, but it is no longer available.
Late 1998, the supply of the original red oil dried up. Being the T-jet junkie that I was, I set out to re-create that classic red oil, and here it is. Thunder Oil Red Racing Oil. Has the look, the feel, the color, and most important, the smell of the original, but with the lubricating technology of today. Thick like the original, it stays where it is put. Won't thin out when hot, will not throw off or run all down inside the motor like lighter oils. The perfect replacement for the original Aurora Red Oil. Comes in a 1 ounce LDPE Plastic bottle, with a 1/2 inch long micro oiler needle. Once again, your T-Jets, will be happy, and MMMMMMMM, that smell!
Lets not forget Atlas, or Eldon, or Bauer, or Faller, or Marx, or Lionel, or Matchbox, etc., and of course, AFX, G+, JL, and AW cars too!
Over 2000 bottles have sold since Thunder Oil was introduced in August of 1999. Your satisfaction is guaranteed!
Have been told by other slot addicts that Thunder Oil also works well on Tomy, Rokar/Lifelike and Tyco/Mattel cars as a gear lube, along with the larger scale cars. The Train hobbyists say the same, a great oil for the locomotive drive gears. Plus I have heard many stories of it's use on things other than just slots, and trains.
